Greenland is part of the North American Plate, so that makes itpart of the Continent of North America, although it is consideredto be European as it is an autonomous country within the Kingdom ofDenmark.
Search "Greenland's religion" Answer . Greenland's people are very strongly Lutheran. Up until 1953, the Lutheran Church was the state church with no freedom of religion. They are sometimes danish.
Greenland is an autonomous region of the European country ofDenmark, and consists of a vast island stretching from the NorthAtlantic Ocean to the Arctic Ocean along the northeast coast ofNorth America. It lies immediately east of northern Canada. It is the largest island in the world, aside from th…e continent ofAustralia. Its major feature is the miles-thick icecap thatoccupies the majority of the island, which is the second largesticecap (after Antarctica) on Earth. The north-south length ofGreenland is about 1800 miles (2900 km), the east-west dimensionranging from 400 to 800 miles (640 to 1280 km). (MORE)
In 1721, Norwegian priest Hans Egede, under the auspices of the Danish king, went to Greenland to "rechristianize" the Norsemen that had settled there many hundreds of years earlier. The only problem was the Norse were long gone, having long since moved on to greener pastures. In any case, Egede's e…xpedition led to the establishment of a trading post and mission, and marked the beginning of Greenland's time as a Danish colony. . Then, in 1953, Denmark's constitution was modified and Greenland became an official part of the country, gaining voting membership in the Danish parliament. In 1979, Greenland was finally awarded "home rule within the Danish Commonwealth," allowing them to elect their own parliament and set up their own local government. . So, Denmark "owns" Greenland, but its people control it. ID3517796345 is Angelus001 (MORE)
It is governed by Denmark, which is in Europe. But it is located inNorth America on a large island near Canada.
Hi My mother is Greenlandic so we go there every summer and if you want i can tell you how it is in Greenland: Is it freesing: In summer it's ok not like people immagine it, In winter it's sometimes really cold like -60Â° celsius but it is dry not humid so people can handle it. Can people… live in the middle of Greenland?: the answer is NO the only thing that there is in the middle of Greenland is ice 3 kilometers of ice but last year 2008 they found some trees under there so i guess that there is also something secret, 2 years ago they found a dead swan on an ice berg and it was still warm and they realized that it had been alive for more the 1000 years intresting huh?!? People only live on the bords of Greenland if not we would freese to death. Hope i helped you (MORE)
Answer The story of it being just clever advertising is widely told and believed, but it is a myth. At the time that Greenland was discovered, the Earth was a bit warmer and southern Greenland actually had green meadows and could sustain villages of Norse settlers and their cattle, sheep, goats, h…orses, etc. The name was actually an accurate description of the land at the time. Since that time the Earth had cooled down some and the ice sheets advanced, forcing the Norse settlers out again. A similar history befell the early Norse settlers to "Vineland" (North America). When they arrived the weather was warm enough to grow grapes. Ultimately global cooling drove the Norsemen back to Greenland and then Iceland. The colony in Iceland was well established by that time and survived. In Norse legends written in the 12th century and later, it is told that Eric the Red explored the southeast and southwest coasts of Greenland in A.D. 983-986 and gave the country its name because people would be more likely to go there if it had an attractive name. Greenland was warmer in the tenth century than it is now. There were many islands teeming with birds off its western coast; the sea was excellent for fishing; and the coast of Greenland itself had many fjords where anchorage was good. At the head of the fjords there were enormous meadows full of grass, willows, junipers, birch, and wild berries. Thus Greenland actually deserved its name. Another attraction of Greenland was that Iceland and northwestern Europe, including England, had a grievous year of famine in 976, and people were hungry for food as well as land. (MORE)
Leif Ericson is NOT correct! Erik the Red discovered and created a settlement on Greenland. Leif Erikson, his son, was born in Greenland, and explored and discovered Newfoundland and Vinland.
It is I think named because it has a lot of trees and things that are green.
it endangers because they can eat it and die or it can get washed up on beaches and animals can get tangled in them and die or drownd and its a reson for global worming and if theres global warming there would be no more polar bears or penguins or any outher kind of ice animal that stays in the ice …so dont litter and use earth frindly matirals try to help the world its a nice thing to do.

The island of Greenland is quite large in size. It is 836,300square miles in area. It is located between the Arctic Ocean andthe Atlantic Ocean.
It would be a lot colder and take up more space than Greenland currently does already.
if the united states were on Greenland it wouldn't have 50 states and it would be a lot of lesser land then we do now.

Greenland can't be an M.E.D.C. since there is hardly anyone livingthere, and no international trade routes to speak of either.
No, Greenland is an island that is, I believe, a protectorate of Denmark. You're thinking of Iceland, which is ALSO not a state.
Greenland is a constitutional country of the Kingdom of Denmark, and is therefore not in the Olympics has no national Olympic committee but has applied for one so they will most probably be in the 2016 Olympics.
Because when Erik the Red (Danish: Erik den RÃ¸de) first came back from Greenland, he wanted people to follow him to the new land. And therefore called it GreenLand (A Green Land), to attract people.
Well, nobody really knows! Scientifically, its part of denmark, which, of course is in europe! But some say its in North America!!!\nThanks for reading!\n. \nMelisssaB
My guess is Europe, since Greenland "belongs" to Denmark. That's incorrect. Greenland is geographically apart of North America. It is politically apart of Denmark, so it belongs to North America.
Although the coasts of the island are very green in the summer when they are ice-free, it may have been part of the colonization efforts by its discoverer, Erik the Red (Danish: Erik den RÃ¸de). After being exiled from Iceland, he returned there in 982, and called the new island Greenland, to attr…act potential settlers. (MORE)
Some danish guy named it Greenland because it sounded good. Though some people say he called it Grundland (Groundland) and somehow it became GrÃ¸nland (Greenland)...
Shanghai, China is the most populated city of the world. It hasover 20 million people and continues to grow every year.
The country of Greenland covers an area of 836,300 square miles.This country is 1,290 kilometers wide and 2,670 kilometers long.
Greenland is the biggest Island of the world. It covers an area of 2.166.086 km2. Up to 85 % is covered in ice. It is an autonomous part of the Danish kingdom.
On the Wallaby, Phil Lewis or Robbb, for example, will probably give a better answer than this, but I am thinking the answer is precisely Nil ! No one at all lives in most of Australia. Most of the Australians live either in the south east or in the coastal regions.
Only near the coast, because those are the only ice-free areas. The highest populations are on the southeast and southwest coasts.
The vikings explored it. Erik The Red originally sighted it while he was banished from his home land. Once he found Greenland he told others good things about it and brought people to live there.
The capital city of Greenland is Nuuk. It was formerly known as Godthaab and is located at the South West sector of the island on the West Coast facing Canada about 200 miles from the Southern most point.
Not Green. It is mostly in the arctic circle which makes it a very cold place.
Geologically, Greenland was originally a part of the continent Arctica. Throughout the millions of years, Greenland has been connected to the U.S. and Canada as what would become a continent known as Laurentia. Before this, Laurentia was part of Kenorland, Columbia, became independent, joined again …with Rodinia, Pannotia, became independent again, joined with Euramerica, Pangaea, Laurasia, and finally separated into what we know as North America in the Cretaceous period. Throughout time, Greenland broke off from the rest of Laurentia to form what we know is Greenland. (MORE)
Iceland was formed by volcanic activity from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It is the point of separation at the Eurasia crust and the American crust. i think Greenland was formed the same way, i looked EVERYWHERE on line and can find anything.
As of the 2006 Canadian Census the Quebec City has a population of 491,142 and metropolitan area has a population of 715,515.
Natural resources and environmental factors greatly affectpopulation distribution. Topography and accessible transportationas well as the type of transportation also affect populationdistribution.
nothing, its just a island 15 times bigger than the uk that is covered with snow so you can just have snowball fights
Greenland is mainly populated by indigenous peoples. People have been in Greenland since prehistoric times. They did not see any reason to leave, obviously, as they established a culture to fit their habitat. Greenland also has a large population of Europeans, as Greenland has been under European co…ntrol (Norwegian and Danish) for over 800 years. (MORE)
No...NT in Asia...It is a part of the continent of North America. Located between Arctic and Atlantic oceans.... "Greenland" the meaning of the word is Land of the Kalaallit people.The largest island in Greenland is also called 'Greenland'.
Greenland is located in the Arctic so what could this country be? Rich or poor? Well this big, far-north island is filled with mostly Inuit people and since they're from Greenland they are called Greenlander people.(I'm serious. Greenlander is the actual truth. I am not kidding. That's what the peop…le are actually called.) The country's population is 57,000. Halibut and shrimp fishing and tourism is in Green- land. The country also is rich in minerals and it's waters may contain hydrocarbon reserves. The setting resources is very similar to the other Arctic island Iceland, the other far north country in the Arctic Ocean. The Greenlander people which live in small isolated villages, the banking sector is not a huge amount. (Iceland does not have a huge banking sector, either.) Unfortunately, Greenland's cities and towns such as Nuuk(Greenland's capital city) there are no roads between the cities and the towns. Travel in Greenland is only possible by planes or boats. Here's an answer: Yes, Greenland is poor. It does not have that much money to afford some stuff. Since the country is in the arctic there is not much money. (MORE)
Yes, the latest available statistics show that Muslims are 23% of total world population (~ 1600 million Muslims) per PEW Forum study as of October 2009.
Yes. Greenland is the communist heartland of the North Atlantic. Most of the towns and villages that dot the coast are run as communes. Many former Soviet communists fled there after the collapse of the Berlin Wall.
Leif Erikson went to greenland and even though greenland had so much ice on it he wanted to attract people there and called it greenland
yes but not as long as when they where in iceland infact they died out quite early
Physiographically Greenland is a part of the continent of North America, However, Greenland is politically and culturally associated with Europe. SO it depends on your point of view.
That is a good question. Greenland is more ice covered and Iceland is more green. They should be switched.
Greenland is an autonomous country in the Kingdom of Denmark. It is not an independent sovereign state, and so no state is in Greenland.
Greenland is not an independent country, it does not issuepassports. Greenland is part of Denmark. To get a Danish passport you need tobe a Danish citizen. The same applies for any passport, you need tobe a citizen of that country.

In short; yes :) Some of these animals include the Polar Bear( Ursus maritimus ), Reindeer ( Rangifer tarandus ) andthe Arctic fox ( Alopex lagopus ). Other animals includemarine, like the humpback whale ( Megaptera novaeangliae ) anddifferent types of seal!
Greenland is the world's largest island. Three-quarters of theisland is covered by the only contemporary ice sheet outside ofAntarctica.
Greenland is a misnomer because it's a name of a land but it's verycold and not green at all.
