The Mackenzie River is considered the Amazon of the North.

As reported in The Tyee::

""The Mackenzie River Basin is thought to be one of the lynchpins holding North America's water, ice and climate interface together and if the stability of this important eco-hydrological system is compromised, it could have huge impacts on southern jurisdictions,"...The Mackenzie basin accounts for a staggering 1.8 million square kilometres of land, and takes in Great Slave, Great Bear and Athabasca lakes."

To understand the immense significance in relation to pollution of 1/5 of Canada's fresh water and the global impacts of methane release from the permafrost, effects on ocean currants, and the Boreal Forest, please read the following:

Intentionally darkening the surface of the Arctic, thus heating and accelerating the release of methane locked in the permafrost is frightening beyond belief.
