You’re taking a fair bit out of context there ಠ\_ಠ
The operative words are *true* tides.
Besides the title of the article reading “Water levels in the Great Lakes change because of meteorological effects, not tides” did you skip over reading these –
* “the largest tides caused by the combined forces of the sun and moon, is less than five centimeters”
* “the Great Lakes are considered to be essentially non-tidal.”
* “These minor variations are masked by the greater fluctuations in lake levels produced by wind and barometric pressure changes.”
Those “tides” you’re referring to are actually fluctuations caused by “wind and barometric pressure changes” not the moon.
