Trump declares Danish PM’s dismissal of his idea to buy Greenland “nasty”.
The current ice melt in Greenland may be warming his heart. That’s because beyond Greenland lies the Arctic, one of the few undeveloped regions of the world with great economic potential.
Greenland is not for sale and the idea of selling it to the United States is absurd, Denmark’s prime minister said on Sunday after an economic adviser to President Donald Trump confirmed the US interest in buying the world’s largest island.
Scientific research shows that this year could see severe melting of the Greenland ice sheet which threatens to submerge the world’s coastal areas in the future.
Greenland could start to export sand in a rare positive spinoff from global warming.
