Possible counterargument.[edit]

In Wisconsin (USA), paper is a sustainable industry. I don't have any specific sources, but it may be worth considering that some locales can sustain a paper industry while others cannot. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.83.172.115 (talk) 05:56, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Dioxins?[edit]

In local sources (Oregon, Washington where I grew up), dioxins were always one of the most feared types of pollution from plants... The chlorinated compounds are generally dioxins, but there's no reference here. Is there a reason for this change in the sources used here? Is the terminology outdated? 76.21.107.221 (talk) 03:48, 7 December 2012 (UTC) The section on [[1]] might give an answer- chlorine free pulping processes are far more common now than in the 1990's and earlier.

Merger proposal[edit]

Proposal to merge from Paper pollution.

The two articles seem to have mostly the same information, repeating much of their articles. Paper pollution seems mostly another way to say the topic, rather than a more specific or detailed topic. 76.21.107.221 (talk) 03:40, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Agreed. Paper pollution should be merged into this article. Karmos (talk) 22:12, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Agreed the two really do seem to be talking about the same thing. This is the better title to use. DGG ( talk ) 00:18, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Agree; can't see this being a contentious one. Go ahead and do the merge. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 22:04, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

I have merged Paper pollution into this article. Much of it was through a bulk edit cut and paste from that article to this one- I tidied it up a little, but i suspect there are still duplication and readability issues. There also, not surprisingly, were contrasting views/'spin' on sustainability/ pollution levels depending on whether the source was connected to the environmental movement or the paper industry- we will, obviously, need to keep this in mind when editing to remain NPOV.WotherspoonSmith (talk) 03:14, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Paper Chase[edit]

I have to question whether the reference cited under 'deforestation' here, fulfills the criteria for WP:RS. One report it mentions in the body of the article is 18 years out of date, going back to 1996.219.88.68.195 (talk) 23:53, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Low quality refs[edit]

The references used in this page are often low quality (business catalogues and brochures, trade group information and the like) and sometimes their use in the text makes no real sense anyway. This needs improvement. JMWt (talk) 16:27, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
