I think it’s the lure of a pristine environment, it’s too good for him not to at least try and mess up.

Nah, he's swallowed the green guff about the ice melting and is after gas and oil.

And yet, you don't see a whole lot of them "imported brains" heading for Denmark.

It's fine denigrating the USA, especially with the current President being what he is. Letting this narrative overcome fact, less so.

Partly you are right.

But. but .... it seems you have forgotten that so many people - nearly half of the electorate - are stupid enough to chose Trump. That's a fact. That means the average American is much more stupid than the better educated Dane. In Denmark, a man like your blockhead Trump would never have a chance to be elected as the leader of the legislature. One reason why the Greenlander prefer Denmark.

 

It seems- not enough imported brains in the USA :crying: ?!

It's the money and more research freedom, why "brains" like to go to the USA.

Oh dear, surely not even POTUS could seriously believe that the people would prefer the USA to Denmark.

They have a stable economy, understand social justice, have world class health care  and education.

 

What drugs does the POTUS indulge in when his thumbs stop moving?

 

I'm not sure about the drugs he indulges in.... and I certainly don't want to think about where his "thumbs" end up when he's not using them to tweet absurdities.

Mads Brugger claims it is almost a done deal. I'll take his word before some puckered MP from Christiania.

I kinda doubt all the people who voted for Trump are stupid. That would be your view - and you probably wouldn't bother substantiating it in any meaningful way. It also doesn't "mean" squat as to others being "better educated". In fact, making such an inference is kinda ironic.

 

And for the umpteenth time. Trump is not "my" anything.

 

You can make up nonsense all you like, but there are plenty of top notch American academics and researchers. And while you may not like it, that's were many smart people choose to further their education - rather than somewhere like Denmark.

The reason, in large part, is likely that Greenland is rich in natural resources, including iron ore, lead, zinc, diamonds, gold, rare-earth elements, uranium and oil, according to the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit public-policy organization in Washington, D.C.

It is also rich in trapped methane gas in the ice sheet.

  • "A key finding is that much of the methane produced beneath the ice likely escapes the Greenland Ice Sheet in large, fast flowing rivers before it can be oxidized to CO2, a typical fate for methane gas which normally reduces its greenhouse warming potency." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/01/190103110300.htm

Full resource development of Greenland will greatly accelerate methane release, further affecting global climate change (good for Mars, not good for Earth).

Furthermore, unrestricted industrialization of Greenland will also accelerate ice sheet melting that could become a major factor in sea-level rise around the world within two decades. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/21/climate/greenland-ice.html

I don't put any stock in this 

It certainly appears incredible , and yet no denials from on high. It it I suppose a mark of Trumps lack of credibility that such an outrageous story can gain any traction.

Nah...because the 'news articles' all say "reportedly"..."according to sources" etc.

 

Probably some joke he cracked....but was fed to MSM because they're in cahoots with

Dems.

So reality is in cahoots with the Democrats , seems reasonable to me though I can see why the orange monkey army might object.

Where is your evidence for this? Have they been given a choice?

"They call it Greenland.  Fake news!  It's white. Very, very white!  Believe me, I know colours and this one is white.  It's the perfect colour for America to buy.  They love me there.  Millions turn up, and the sun always shines every time I fly over it!  Buy Greenland, MAWA!

Very good:)

However, surely even he isn’t this stupid. 

I wouldn't bet on that! Agree with the rest of your post.

Centuries ago a lot of Europe's lowest of the lowest went to Greenland, thinking it was green. Arrived they found out it was not. Realizing they were fooled they made a left turn and went to America. 

Are you aware that you are talking about Vikings...🤨
