People can do it, they can take control of their government and their lives. Hats off and gold stars to those who are taking control, and deciding what is best for them.

As the weather continues to warm, Greenland must realize that they will become prime land as Their entire ecosystem will change. FARM land and WATER resources should be set aside and PROTECTED as the rest of the world becomes more arid and poisoned. The LACKof potable water will be felt as eraly as 2032 ONLY 20 (TWENTY) YEARS FROM NOW !!!!! (Yes, many places are already in dire straights)

Sooooo.....I truly hope they DO think into the future and do not succomb to immediate growth/money syndrome especially for continued use of DIRTY FUELS. (I'd bet wind farms would do VERY well there.)
