Tycho Brahe?[edit]

Tycho Brahe was a well known danish noblemen and made theories similar to Copernicus, so would'nt a entry in the Technologies section be neccesary? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.143.69.99 (talk) 16:02, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Tycho was born in an area that has been in Denmark and Sweden at different times. — Preceding unsigned comment added by White373737 (talkcontribs) 17:13, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
It was Danish at the time of Tycho Braha, and he was a scientist in Copenhagen for the Danish king and later a Danish nobel.Carewolf (talk) 22:46, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Country vs kingdom[edit]

I edited this article some time ago to give better balance to all of the kingdom. Currently, however, Netherlands and New Zealand are about the constituent countries. For consistency, I wouldn't object to the same here, as long as we have an equivalent hat note such as

This page is about the constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. For other uses, see Denmark (disambiguation).

The Danish Realm[edit]

The emphasis on The kingdom of Denmark should be diminished, to get this article in line with contemporary reality.

The official term for the Faroe islands, Greenland and Denmark proper, is Det danske rige or Rigsfællesskabet, usually translated as The Danish Realm. The Danish Crown does not own anything in the Faroese Islands or Greenland. They hardly own (or govern) anything in Denmark proper. The term The Kingdom of Denmark is outdated and should be replaced with the term The Danish Realm. Officially The Danish Realm is part of and geographically similar to The Kingdom of Denmark, but The Danish Realm is an actual governing institution, whereas the Danish Crown has very limited political power.

A source: Rigsfællesskabet

Feel free to discuss here, before I make the necessary changes.

Meat consumption[edit]

I removed the bit about meat consumption which was based on 2002 figures, but contradicted by 2007 figures [1].·maunus · snunɐɯ· 18:14, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Ok. I was also about to write something here on the talk page about "meat consumption", as it appears that this figure has gotten a somewhat distorted meaning in the public at large. I might as well insert my note of caution here. I put it in the now deleted ref-note. Here goes:
"Note: Meat consumption was calculated using a trade balance approach - total production plus imports, minus exports. Because of the method of calculation, the meat consumption per capita, does not equate the human meat consumption per capita. In addition, consumption in a trade context does not equate diet. Denmark process a large portion of the domestic meat production and it is unclear if the exports used in the calculation includes all kinds of processed meat products. Meat products are also consumed by domestic cattle, livestock, pets and production animals (mink, chickens, farmed fish, etc.) and not all are related to human diet. It is also unclear if meat includes fish and seafood. The large seafood harvest of Denmark (including Greenland and the Faroe Islands) is often processed and used in a variety of products, clouding the meaning of "meat consumption"."
These warnings applies to the use of the figure "meat consumption", without regard of country. It appears that a lot of factors, some of which cannot be easily discerned, (potentially) subtracts from what is thought of as human diet. It is an unreliable and very murky figure in this regard, but probably not regarding trade and commerce.
