  • Greenland needs new jobs and foreign labour

    The Nordic Labour Journal ^ | October 18, 2019 | Marie Preisler
    There is an urgent need to create new jobs in Greenland’s mining and tourism industries. At the same time more foreign labour is needed, say the social partners. Cutters and trawlers in Northern Greenland are catching fish and prawns in such numbers that the Greenlandic economy is close to overheating. The fisheries fairytale has triggered a veritable construction boom in the capital Nuuk, where cranes and new builds shoot into the sky everywhere, while house prices do the same. It has become difficult to live in the capital unless you earn a lot of money. Meanwhile, Greenland’s fish processing plants,...

    The surprising ‘belwhal’ DNA reveals beluga-narwhal hybrid by Philip Robinson This article is from Creation 41(4):19, October 2019 Three unusual-looking whales were caught in Greenland by Inuit hunters in the late 1980s—unlike any the Inuit had ever seen. Each was an even grey colour, with flippers like those of belugas, and tails like those of narwhals. One of their skulls was preserved; a DNA study has now identified it as a first-generation hybrid between a male beluga and a female narwhal—a ‘belwhal’. One of their skulls was preserved; a DNA study has now identified it as a first-generation hybrid between...

    Ahead of MSNBC’s climate change forum with several 2020 Democratic candidates on September 19 and 20, on Monday, NBC News announced it will be creating a new “climate unit” of reporters devoted to pushing the liberal environmental agenda and even launch a Climate in Crisis series in the days leading up to the presidential campaign event. “NBC News creating a new climate unit to cover the most important issues that affect our environment,” weatherman Al Roker announced on NBC’s Today show. He continued to tout: “We’re gonna kick things off next week with a special network-wide series....Be sure to look...

    CNN political analyst David Gergen said Wednesday that action to counter climate change has become a "moral imperative" as Hurricane Dorian inched its way up the East Coast. During a discussion of a recent trip to Greenland on "CNN Newsroom," Gergen claimed U.S. cities should prepare for massive flooding if polar ice caps continue to melt. “I went [to Greenland] thinking it was a practical imperative to deal with climate change. I came away feeling it’s a moral imperative," he said. "When you see what’s happening in Greenland, it is an early -- it's an early set of signals about...

    It was recently reported that US President Donald Trump wants to buy Greenland, but what would he actually be getting for his money? Umar Ali takes a look at Greenland’s mineral resources, whether they are worth mining, and why the US could want them. The Kvanefjeld project Greenland currently only has one major mining project, the Kvanefjeld rare earth project launched in 2007. The project is centred on the Ilimaussaq alkaline complex in southwest Greenland, measuring approximately 8km x 15km, it is being developed by Australian company Greenland Minerals. The Kvanefjeld project is thought to be one of the world’s...

    President Donald Trump is rapidly heating up travelers’ interest in one of the coldest places on earth. The president’s abandoned proposal to purchase Greenland has captured global attention. The prime minister of Denmark—of which Greenland is an autonomous territory—has stated the island is not for sale. Yet that’s not stopping travel apps like Hopper from seeing Greenland searches skyrocket over 300% in the wake of the geopolitical saga. “A spike in the order of [nearly] 340% is totally unforeseen,” Hopper economist Hayley Berg told Yahoo Finance’s YFi PM. He added: “when something goes into the media in such broad strokes...

    WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. — Jill Biden ribbed President Trump for his interest in Greenland during a speech at a Democratic fundraiser. The former second lady, on a two-day swing of the Carolinas, urged South Carolina Democrats in West Columbia on Saturday to recall what politics was like pre-Trump, a time when the commander in chief didn't issue surprise pronouncements on social media. "Just for a moment I want you to imagine that it's the summer of 2021," Biden, 68, told a crowd of about 50 gathered for a barbecue fundraiser by the Lexington County Democratic Party.

    I see that the Danish Prime Minister placed a call to President Trump shortly before he left for Europe, possibly in an effort to smooth over the kerfuffle she created by her rude response to the President’s off-handed comment about buying Greenland.My sister had a better idea: we trade the Danes Greenland for Puerto Rico. That way the Danes will have someplace warm to go in the winter when there’s only 6 hours of sunlight in Denmark and we’ll have someplace America’s Green New Deal crowd can go to observe the melting of glaciers. And they can stay there and...

    An odd little story surfaced this week over President Trump’s idea about buying Greenland. For some reason, a Republican senator felt the need to let some constituents in on a fact not previously reported on – he was the one who had the idea in the first place a year ago.Senator Tom Cotton was back home in Arkansas Wednesday and attended a luncheon hosted by an Arkansas-based news website. The inaugural Talk Business & Politics Power Lunch at the Red & Blue Events Center in Little Rock, Arkansas produced an interesting tidbit from Senator Cotton. When asked about the...

    Fox News ^ | August 23, 2019 | Marc Thiessen, The Washington Post
    President Trump is upset that Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called his interest in purchasing Greenland "absurd." Her dismissive response should have come as no surprise. In 1946, when President Harry Truman tried to purchase Greenland, Secretary of State James Byrnes wrote that the proposal "seemed to come as a shock" and an insult to Danish officials, who turned it down. That was a big mistake. As part of his deal, Truman had offered to trade parts of the Point Barrow district of Alaska, including the rights to any oil discovered there, to Denmark, in exchange for parts of Greenland....

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is planning to open a U.S. consulate in Greenland for the first time in decades amid increased strategic and economic interest in the Danish territory. The State Department says in a letter to Congress that reestablishing a consulate in Greenland is part of a broader plan to increase the U.S. presence in the Arctic.....

    “Joke” should be in quotation marks. There isn’t a shadow of a doubt that he would do that deal if it were on the table. Greenland, for one, was not on the staff’s list of priorities for the week. But while Mr. Trump has long derided nation-building, his flirtation with nation-buying turned out to be more serious than many originally thought. He has been talking privately about buying Greenland for more than a year and even detailed the National Security Council staff to study the idea. At one point last year, according to a former official who heard him, he...

    Thursday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said President Donald Trump was so aliening our allies, as evidenced by his back-and-forth with Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, they might not help America if we are attacked. Host Brianna Keilar asked, “I want to ask you about the G7. The president is heading to France after several days of stirring up controversy on the international stage before he even arrives. What impact will that have on the president’s ability to work with global leaders during what are really high-stakes meetings?” Swalwell said, “We need friends in the world....

    The President of the United States wants to buy an icy northern territory from a foreign country. Critics hate the idea and mock it as absurd and wasteful. But the President makes the deal, and the purchase proves to be one of the most brilliant geopolitical deals in history—a huge boon to American strength and prosperity. Am I describing the 45th President’s effort to buy Greenland from Denmark? Nope, I’m describing the 17th President’s successful effort to buy Alaska from Russia in 1867. It was one of the best bargains America ever struck. If President Trump can pull off another...

    Greenland might be the new travel hot spot, thanks to President Trump. Since Trump expressed his interest in buying Greenland (and Denmark's prime minister called it absurd), some travel groups, along with the country's tourism board, have seen an uptick in interest for vacation packages and tours for the country. When Trump announced his consideration on August 16, Nordic Visitor saw a significant rise in online users viewing its vacation packages. "[T]raffic to our Greenland site increased by more than 2,800%, compared to the same date in 2018," the travel agency said in a statement to CNN Travel. "Ongoing traffic...

"Denmark is the country with the best education in the world,"...

    The diplomatic row that has erupted between Washington and Copenhagen over Greenland is just one part of a broader strategic battle being waged over control of the Arctic, according to one expert. US President Donald Trump has cancelled a trip to Denmark and launched a war of words with his Danish counterpart, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, after she rejected his idea of the US buying Greenland as "absurd". Mikaa Mered, professor of polar geopolitics at Paris' ILERI institute of international relations said Trump's unsolicited advances on the autonomous territory were a way to indicate US interest in the resource-rich Arctic...

    The moment The Wall Street Journal article appeared revealing President Trump was mulling over the idea of the United States buying Greenland, the autonomous Danish territory in the Atlantic, ankle-biters began to mock the idea. But this usual panic from the jealous chattering class once again reveals the Democrats and envious Trump haters’ biggest unforced error — constantly underestimating Donald Trump. This requires deliberately maintaining a remarkable ignorance about the economic and national security issues we face as a nation. One of those issues is the vital importance of Greenland, its horrible mismanagement as the Danish elite virtue signal about...

    What's the deal with Greenland? Why would POTUS suddenly bring it into focus? Patrick Mack gets to the backgound that explains POTUS's actions. First note that Greenland is really Iceland and Iceland is really more green. It is said the Vikings switched the names to mislead others exploring lands on the periphery of the Artic. Note from history that Greenland, an inhabitable wasteland except for research stations and military bases, was claimed by both the United States and Denmark and the UN assuaged a slab of UN gobbledegook by making it seem as if Denmark had this or that and...

    The Danish royal family was “surprised” after President Trump scrapped a planned visit to Denmark following comments by the country's prime minister that the idea the U.S. might buy Greenland from them was “absurd.” Trump had been expected to visit Denmark on Sept. 2-3 as part of his trip to Europe, but until his tweets Tuesday, there were no solid indications the visit was centered on buying Greenland. "Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be...
