Wondering how to edit this U.S. City Entry?


The WikiProject U.S. Cities standards might help.

It seems like there should be some mention of the oil refineries at North Pole. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:36, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Is this really needed: "It is not the actual North Pole." My reaction to that was LOL. (talk) 19:47, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I know. Too many articles needing help for the kind of time I may actually have, unfortunately. This one's usually near the top of my list, though.RadioKAOS (talk) 21:55, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Polar Bears[edit]

"The Polar Bears of this region are some of the greatest animals to view in the wild. As a young infant I was taken there and was able to watch them fish in the river. This is and experience that I will never forget along with the white snow. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Calevingston (talkcontribs) 17:15, 13 December 2015 (UTC) "

Correction, as a current North Pole resident I assure you that polar bear sightings are extremely rare. Truly any sightings of a bear in North Pole is highly unlikely, as it is a rather populated area compared to other parts of the state. Not to mention that the temperatures that occur in North Pole are usually to warm for polar bears. Besides that, North Pole is located in the interior of Alaska, the only rivers near are not naturally populated with fish anyways, therefore not a reliable food source for polar bears, not to mention that the Chena river is also part of the Chena flood project so it is damed in order to defer flooding. If one wishes to see polar bears the should look farther north, polar bears are seen in Alaska just Northern Alaska not interior. (talk) 05:19, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
