Greenland's receding icecap to expose top-secret US nuclear project
This article is more than 2 years old
Camp Century – part of Project Iceworm – is an underground cold war network that was thought to have been buried forever



n reality, the camp served as cover for something altogether different - a project so immense and so secret that not even the Danish government was informed of its existence. “They thought it would never be exposed,” said Colgan. “Back then, in the 60s, the term global warming had not even been coined. But the climate is changing, and the question now is whether what’s down there is going to stay down there.”

Love this thread, made my morning and made me crack up for a while now.

Buy Greenland. lol

I think someone is going to get in trouble for leaking those insane private conversations with Trump and giving us an inside look into the mind of a megalomaniac. The leaker just made him look like a fool.


trump probably thinks we can trade beads and mirrors to the natives for payment.

Greenland has the highest suicide rate in the world. High rates of alcoholism, no jobs. We tried to buy it a couple of times but they would rather be poor sickly socialists I guess fishing and freezing their butts off.

In fairness to the Greenlanders, it's pretty hard to build an economy with nothing but ice, rocks, and walrus poop. I mean, their national flower is probably a lichen or something.

Okay. That makes sense. Underwater drilling.


Greenland is an island( largest island in the world) with an ice sheet, the cratons in the world have become important as places of refuge in the coming global disaster.




Greenland sits atop the Greenland plate, a subplate of the North American plate.[1][2] The Greenland craton is made up of some of the oldest rocks on the face of the earth. The Isua greenstone belt in southwestern Greenland contains the oldest known rocks on Earth, dated at 3.7–3.8 billion years old.[3]

en.m.wikipedia.org...




Soil material at the base of an ice core from Greenland, indicates the ice sheet overlies an ancient tundra landscape, similar to the tundra that currently exists in the Arctic.

Hillary Clinton lands in Greenland for Arctic summit



The melt is undermining the hunting livelihoods of indigenous peoples and threatening polar bears and other creatures. But the changes may also make the Arctic more accessible to shipping, mining and oil and gas exploration. The region is estimated to hold about a quarter of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas reserves.

The places the US bought are much better off than before the purchase from a human quality of life standpoint. Protection, rule of law, balancing of environmental effects with regulations. It's not even close the positive impacts on lives as opposed to not messing with natural resources. It's never going to be perfect but the suicide rates and alcoholism go way down when the economy gets a shot in the arm. It's never going to improve in the current state.

Ah, the irony of giving the uneducated a voice!

The current owners already hold themselves to a much higher standard than the US, which is why they report better quality of life, see far fewer crimes, and have a significantly higher environmental standards than the US.

If Denmark can't turn Greenland into Utopia, the US has precisely zero chance to do better.

Which I am sure you were well aware of before making your comment?

The new research, supported by funding from the National Science Foundation, shows that "the soil had been stable and exposed at the surface for somewhere between 200,000 and one million years before being covered by ice," notes Ben Crosby, a member of the research team from Idaho State University.


To help interpret these unexpected findings, the team also measured nitrogen and carbon that could have been left by plant material in the core sample. "The fact that measurable amounts of organic material were found in the silty ice indicates that soil must have been present under the ice," said co-author Andrea Lini at the University of Vermont -- and its composition suggests that the pre-glacial landscape may have been a partially forested tundra


. "Greenland really was green! However, it was millions of years ago," said Rood, "Greenland looked like the green Alaskan tundra, before it was covered by the second largest body of ice on Earth." To confirm their findings about this ancient landscape, the researchers also measured beryllium levels in a modern permafrost tundra soil on the North Slope of Alaska. "The values were very similar," said Bierman, "which made us more confident that what we found under Greenland was tundra soil."

Also, there is a lot of debate about how maps are drawn and Greenland is one of the most misrepresented land masses in the world.


not really.





While it looks to be about 3-3.5x the size of Alaska it's only about 10% larger.


Alaska has a land area of 1,477,953 sq km. Greenland has 2,166,086 sq km of land. quite a bit more than 10%, maybe 45% larger? i am not working it out lol so in short the maps and scales are pretty spot on.


You have NO idea just how far off/wrong you are, and I've used your country to prove my point - read full reply to understand and appreciate the reasoning for all this.

While this subject might not be very interesting to many people, it is actually much more important than others realize as is has GREAT effect on geopolitics and perceived power of various countries. There are even theories about how distance from pole or equator effects the size of a mile (mathematically relative) and possibly everything to some degree. That last part is a little out there, but the rest of this response has lots of interesting info. Please read over it and LMK what you think or if you knew this stuff before! I spend more time than I wanted but since this sin't covered much of anywhere and is taught in the brainwashing institutions, I figured someone should spread the truth.


I should have started here, but as always I made it more difficult. Here is a good link that represents Greenland laid over Africa

www.indy100.com...



geoawesomeness.com...


Well you are right and your not, and I made a simple mistake that is kind of Google fault. I did a simple search for "Greenland" and "Alaska", in those orders. ON the right hand side it shows "area = 836,300 sq miles". i did the same thing for Alaska and got the same format of results, so I thought (on the right hand side) , of 737,438 of what I thought was sq miles - so it would have been 13% larger than Alaska. The problem is, they didn't list population for greenland but they did for Alaska, and vice-versa, Greenland listed the area, but no population. This is all on the google search page, not on their Wiki pages. So I mistook those numbers.
Eithere way, I checked them out and got the following
Greenland = 836,300 sq miles is = 21.7% the size of Canada or = 22% the size of the US (all 50 states)
Alaska = 663,268 sq miles
Greenland is 26% lager by land mass/area


Considering Canada is
3,855,100 sq mi or 4.61x larger than Greenland
US is:
3,796,742 sq mi or 4.54x larger than Greenland

Top 11 sized countries - larger than Greenland (including Greenland @ position 12)
All area's in km^2
1 Russia 17,098,242 - Greeland is 12.67% the size of RUSSIA!!!
2 Canada 9,984,670
3 United States 9,826,675
4 China 9,596,960
5 Brazil 8,514,877
6 Australia 7,741,220
7 India 3,287,263
8 Argentina 2,780,400
9 Kazakhstan 2,724,900
10 Algeria 2,381,741
11 Congo, Democratic Republic of the 2,344,858
12 Greenland (Denmark) 2,166,086

Countries Smaller than Greenland, but larger then Alaska
All area's in km^2
13 Saudi Arabia 2,149,690
14 Mexico 1,964,375
15 Indonesia 1,904,569
16 Sudan 1,861,484
17 Libya 1,759,540

Now take a look at the DRC/Congo & Greenland & Saudi Arabia and just LOOK at how big Greenland looks compared to these other countries on the map. Obviously they are different shapes, buy you can tell there is a HUGE difference in the size on the map. I forget the term that is used to describe this, IIRC, it is named after a map maker from the 18th or 19th century and starts with an M (the effect or the name of the they of map that distorts like this). basically it makes the entire northern hemisphere look MUCH larger than the southern hemisphere unless they manipulate the countries on purpose.

DRC 1345 miles N-S , 1215 miles E-W
Greenland 1650 miles NS, 770 miles E-W
Saudi Arabia - 1,269 miles N-S 933 miles E-W

Try this - this will really blow your mind! Measure the distance across Australia E to W at the very center of the country N/S wise. Measure from the Goaldcoast/Brisbane to Carrarang (West coast) It's about 2400-2440 miles.

Now go to Nova Scotia and find "Cape Dyer" it's the front of the bottom paw of the upside down "Scottie dog" and closest point to Greenland. Now find Elephant point or Noorvik in Alaska (west coast). It the first southern "inlet" cove/"bay" (LARGE bay) area coming down the west coast from the north/western most point in Alaska. That is 2,420-2,430 miles. Look at the size difference to Australia on the map! I measured with very accurate calipers between the 2 points on each country and I got 900 units for Canada/Alaska and 365 units for Australia. That means Australia shows up as 40% the size of the same size/distance in the northern hemisphere.

There is speculation as to why maps are drawn this way, it supposedly benefited the British, Scandinavian and Russian Empire (most of whom made the maps in the 18th & 19th centuries! - as well as french, Germans, Italians and other, but they benefit from the "north looking larger than southern hemisphere countries too.
**edit found the "term" and map maker for current world view - we use "Mercator" maps

en.wikipedia.org...


There is also some speculation that this stuff really isnt' so far off, if you get into "flat earth" talk, or even a "bowl" earth or similar, some of this can be explained a little, but not entirely, much of that is bad map design and

Which map is best map?

Awww you did all those mathematics for me? shucks

Your area for Alaska is including water territory I think? Alaska land are is 570,640.95 sq mi according to Wikipedia.
so still a bit larger than 25%

Basically Alaska + Texas = the land mass off Greenland.

Back on topic. Would 50 billion USD be a fair price for Greenland? Not for Denmark, just give each local a cool million to vote to join the USA. What's Denmark gonna do?

Next the OG (Orange Gut) will sell Alaska back to Russia.

H3ll, all his land deals fall and get bought by foreign companies that are too lazy to drop the Trump name from their purchase so why not Greenland??

/serious sarcasm (why does a septuagenarian get make stupid announcements like this?? Any other old guy would be looking at brochures at which assisted living facility they would like to go to).

Great... now I am a racist for this post. Don’t worry, I feel the same about stupid people.

Trump could say he ate poop this morning and say it was too tick and smelly and you would figure out he said he read the news about democrats attempting to take him down and he made a smart sarcastic comment about it

But he actually ate his poop in the bathroom because he went into a dementia episode and you will never know better.

Anyways, i guess soon we'll have news about how the people in Greenland are sad and helpless and need US help to be "free", then we can guess some kind of violent group will rise out there and then it will be time to go kill them all and get access to the oil and resources we all know are there, waiting....

Also everyone who constantly creates an artificial reality where there's an explanation for Trump's demential behavior, while ignoring all the signs of his dementia, reminds me of this dog. Just like "There's a new tweet!!!!! Scrambles to read it and figure out how to avoid thinking it's demential, then eats it all in one gulp"

The idea is to get more ARTIC Land Area. Continued GLOBAL WARMING which is melting the Artic is openning access to un-exploited oil reserves (the reason for all the climate denialism by the wealthly).

Trump is too stupid to know that it's not in Demark's interest to sell the land and never has been.
