Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the resources, real or estimated, of Canada as to their potential availability for use by the United States. The scope has been restricted to potential sources of energy fossil fuels and hydro-electric power, and the potential diversion of fresh surface water from Canada. The projected shortages in heavy metals and Canadas potential for production are not covered in this paper. The impact of an ever increasing nationalism on export of natural resources is discussed. The main topics are fresh water, hydro-electric power, and natural gas. A tentative projection of the amounts of energy available for export to the United States is made. Some estimation of the future energy requirements for the next twenty-five years is offered, and the ability of the United States to develop existing or create new sources is considered. News articles, encylopedias, and personal familiarity with Canada and Canadians have formed the opinions stated. Author
