    Well, you make it sound like Denmark has all the saying in selling Greenland, but that is not at all the case. The government on Greenland also has to choose what to do, just saying :p

    I don't think it is good for any country to get Greenland right now. I believe we should wait 20 to 50 years to see how Greenland is doing all together. If China is going after it though, America needs to get it first. The country is already taking over Africa.

    Are the amaericans all dump and stupid? Hoping the ice melts to get more oil and gas for the cars. Are you kidding me you guys are so bad. Please Denmark keep it for ever and protect the ice and the nature in Greenland.

  • Tea laBlu

    Fun fact: the weight of all of that ice has actually forced the crust to curve a bit under it. So “Greenland” is basically some mountains sticking up around the outline of the island. And, when that ice melts, the crust will rebound, so that ice melt will just get added to the global sea level. Hoorah.

    Greenland would be a territory.....no need to make a new flag for a long time

    Why bother to buy Greenland? If we want it, just take it and then sit back and watch as the mighty Danish Army, all 12,000 of them, try to take it back. As for the Danish Navy, their most impressive naval operation was in 1943 when they scuttling their own fleet to keep in out of the hands of the Germans. Sorry if I'm beating up on Denmark, but come on, there would be nothing to stop the United States from simply taking the island. One regiment of Marines should be more than enough. Actually, a well lead battalion of Marines could get the job done.

    Sir, the ice sheet on Greenland is not melting. It melts some in the summer and it grows some in the winter. The climate change mafia has filled your mind with nonsense. So human habitation is no reason to buy this place. However, for defensive reasons and oil, gas and gold, we definitely should.

  • FvckYoutube'sCensorship UseAdblock

    8:10. Don't really need Greenland for that. If the US really wanted to we could just leave the terrorists alone for a bit and invade Canada instead. Make their territories states 51-60. After that if Denmark doesn't want to sell Greenland then the US could just steal it. Being a superpower has it's perks.

  • FvckYoutube'sCensorship UseAdblock

    7:00 412B barrels = 11.5 years worth = big deal, just postpones the inevitable. Even including the Arctic there's about 50 years worth left. Actually probably more like 30 years since economies are still growing 2-3% a year on average. I guess global economic depressions aren't all bad, it will make the oil last longer.

  • Damián "el Salsuero"

    There's a giant lake under Greenland's ice... and with the amount of melting needed to uncover it, the sea level would rise enough that it would turn that lake into an internal sea directly connected to the ocean. That's a a lot of non-land under that ice.

  • Douglas Johnson
    Douglas Johnson 16 days ago

    Well, this sort of depends in the circumstances. In the event of a global security emergency, Denmark would have no hope of defending and securing the territorial integrity of the island. It is possible that Europe could collectively (because it is best to consider it European territory in this scenario), but if it could not, for whatever reason, the U.S. would have to out of necessity. In regard to the island's energy resources, considering the 100 year time frame mentioned in the video, it is likely that oil and natural gas main sources of energy will be obsolete by then.

    I am with Canada on that one, the route goes between their island thus making it Canadian
