 Canada, The Arctic, Inuit : Persistent Organic Pollutants
To look at the snow and ice of the land and the clear blue Arctic sea, one would think that the Arctic is the cleanest place on Earth, that the smog and pollution of the big cities to the south could not possibly travel this far.
Although there are few pollution sources in Nunavut, the region of Arctic Canada studied, it is on the receiving end of toxic pollutants known as dioxin that have been transported over long distances by the prevailing air currents, says the report by the Center for Biology of Natural Systems of Queens College in New York.
"We have known for a long time that native communities living in the Arctic circle thousands of miles from industry had high levels of dioxin in their blood and tissue samples and now we have specified where the dioxin is actually coming from," he told IPS in a phone interview.

 SignOnSanDiego.com > News > Nation -- House approves oil drilling in Alaska refuge
The House voted 225-201 to direct the Interior Department to open oil leases on the coastal strip of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge – an area of 1.5 million acres that is thought likely to hold about 11 billion barrels of recoverable oil.
Arctic refuge development, while approved by the House five times, repeatedly has been blocked in the Senate where drilling proponents have been unable to muster the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster.
The refuge was set aside for protection in 1960 and expanded by Congress to 19 million acres in 1980 with a stipulation that its oil – limited to the coastal strip – could be developed, but only if Congress directs to do so.
