Three views to Pangnirtung Fiord

Some say Pang is a natural gem, but one does not need to be a tree-hugging hippie to realize that the dump in Pang is not very green. There is no recycling and everything that ends up at the dump is burned at a regular interval. It's the only way to keep the dump from overflowing and prevent garbage from blowing all around the tundra.

Recycling is currently infeasible and incinerators too expensive.

Sometimes the wind turns when the fire is raging and the smoke is blown into town. And it does not smell romantic like a campfire on a sunset.
