The largest Greenland wildfire(s) during the 21st century is burning. Historically, Greenland's fires have not been major problems. Since Greenland is a low populated country, its resources to fight these blazes may also be low. Possibly, underlying peat may be burning. In other places on Earth, peat fires can continue for years. Hopefully, efforts can be rallied to stem the fire(s).

Did you flunk geography as well as statistics? The Canadian Rockies are not in Greenland.

Look, you idiot, litesong was taking about it being the largest wildfire in Greenland. It makes no sense to say he forgot about the Canadian Rockies. He wasn't talking about Canada, and the Canadian Rockies are not in Greenland.

If I say that London is the biggest city in England, would it make any sort of sense for you to say, "Dude, did you forget about Shanghai??" Of course not, because Shanghai isn't in England, but that's the same as you just did here.

Honestly, how is it possible for you to have any sort of rational conversation when you struggle so badly to parse straightforward English?

Not making an analogy. You still don't understand anything yet.

You got it.

I guess that, according to SD, you can't parse English either.

More on the continuing Greenland wildfires:
http://mashable.com/2017/08/10/large-greenland-wildfire-burns-more-than-a-week/#fBvlJU2H_iqo
Reports state that the fires may be hunter caused, because the wildfire region is a popular hunting area. Also, immigrants are increasing Greenland population, forcing up home & rental purchase costs. With increasing numbers of people, increasing wildfires are not to be unexpected.

More details about the Greenland wildfire from Robert Scribbler. Also, mentioned are other, more massive Siberian Arctic burnings, covering 2000miles in length. Both Greenland & Siberia have large peat bogs. Hopefully, peat, that can burn for years, will not be the fate of Greenland.

Sounds like it won't. It's burning away.

Considerations are that Greenland's largest (ever?) wildfire is the result of warming temperatures, that may not be turned:

Greenland's largest wildfire:
http://deathrattlesports.com/largest-ever-wildfire-in-greenland-seen-burning-from-space/1041
From the article:
'Usually when a wildfire is smouldering like that it's because there's a lot of ground-level fuel, carbon organic matter; that's why I assume that it's peat,' wildfire expert Professor Jessica McCarty, from Miami University, told BBC News.
'The fire line is not moving, the fire is not progressing like we'd see in a forest fire, so that means it's burning whatever fuel is on the ground.'....... peat.
////////
The peat is only 44 miles from the southern reaches of the Greenland Ice Sheet that has been decreasing in size.

More details of the Greenland wildfire:
http://www.dw.com/en/greenland-land-of-ice-on-fire/a-40136045
From the article:
Scientists say global warming and increased plant cover are likely factors.
////////
Along with AGW generated extra plant cover burning in the wildfires, AGW has melted southern portions of the Greenland Ice Sheet, uncovering the ancient peat, which also may be adding fuel to the fires. These possibilities will be determined in post-fire studies to exactly determine the burn characteristics. It'll be an interesting scientific discourse.
Presently, some burn spots are over & predictions for rainfall may curtail these Greenland wildfire.
Parallels to increased Russian forest & perma-frost Siberian burns should be made.
