Learn about air pollution in Alaska, in this video segment adapted from KUAC. Hear from Matthew Bean, a Yup’ik Eskimo, who describes how the once clear blue skies have become less transparent, and from bush pilot Dennis Miller, who describes how the haze looks from the air. In addition, learn about the research of Glenn Shaw, the first scientist to study Arctic haze, and examine how the long-range transport of particles around the globe brings pollution to the Arctic. Finally, consider how Arctic haze may be contributing to climate change.
