Danger at the end of the Earth

This is Nunavik - a beautiful landscape of forests, blue skies, and crystal clear waters. It's a huge territory with fourteen Inuit villages in the Arctic area of Canada. 

There are wild animals such as bears and wolves everywhere. There are also caribou - a kind of reindeer. Fish fill the rivers, lakes, and sea. In summer, the sun shines day and night. This is when people fish, hunt and pick berries. Winter is cold and dark, but at night, stars fill the clear, dark sky and the Northern Lights swirl above in a symphony of colors.

You might think that the Nunavik geographical position at the end of the Earth keeps it safe from the big city problems like air and water pollution. Unfortunately, the pretty villages of Nunavik have not escaped the problems that the rest of the world faces too.

Some years ago, scientists made a worrying discovery. An extremely dangerous group of chemicals known as ‘‘persistent organic pollutants’ (or POPs) were attacking the Arctic environment. There are few factories in the region and not many cars, so where was the pollution coming from? It turns out that it was coming from factories and cities thousands of kilometers away. But how?

POPs are used everywhere - in electronic appliances like TVs, in the lights and electrical wiring of buildings and in paint. They are also sprayed onto crops as pesticides. Over time, they evaporate, become gas and go into the air, and the wind carries them thousands of kilometers. When they reach a cold environment, the gas becomes a liquid, like water. So when the wind carries POPs into the Arctic, cold temperatures make them stick to plants and fall into the oceans, where they remain and build up over time. POPs also collect inside the fat of people and animals, and since they can't be digested, they stay there forever. The biggest animals like seals and whales have the most POPs in their bodies. These are the animals that Inuit people have been eating for thousands of years.

POPs can cause cancer and allergies, as well as damage to the nervous and immune systems. They can also cause developmental problems in babies and children. Clearly, something had to be done about the problem and so in the 1990s, the United Nations held a meeting called the Stockholm Convention to discuss banning lots of the POP chemicals. Since then, many countries have agreed to start producing fewer POP chemicals and as a result, levels of POPs in the Arctic are falling.

It will take many years for the problem to go away. For one thing, buildings around the world still contain many tons of POPs in their paint and wiring. Every day, those chemicals turn into gas and enter the atmosphere, eventually reaching the Arctic.

For the Inuit people, and all the people and animals in the arctic regions, their only hope is the work of scientists and the cooperation of the rest of the world in putting an end to POPs once and for all.
