Section "Scientific predicitons"[edit]

The following text was removed from the section "Scientific predictions" based on it being at best, unsourced or a worst, synthesis and crystal ballery;

"Practically all pollution in the high Arctic arrives from more southerly latitudes. Along with the warming comes melting sea ice. Arctic shrinkage could lead to more local pollution sources. If large portions of sea ice disappear, more pollution and stronger climate effects are predicted because of the increase in shipping and Arctic oil drilling. Teshekpuk Lake or the Utukok Highlands, for example, could be prime oil fields, considering parts of the Arctic Refuge are already in debate for drilling. The lake and its wetlands are prime breeding ground for peregrines, gyrfalcons, rough-legged hawks, and for the 490,000 animals of the western Arctic caribou herd. Also, because of global warming, the Arctic refuge is seeing more rainfall with a freeze afterward. These issues are putting the animals and the environment at serious risk." 203.27.72.5 (talk) 22:00, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Section "Origin of pollutants"[edit]

I removed the following unsourced and highly doubtful statement; "The Industrial Revolution was the first era that toxic substances built up to create a blanket of haze.". 203.27.72.5 (talk) 22:09, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
