ENERGY, TRADE AND POLLUTION IN CANADA AT THE END OF THE SECOND MILLENNIUM: A STUDY IN SHORT-SIGHTEDNESS?
AbstractThis article assumes that one of the most promising accomplishments of the future will be the implementation of environmental management techniques that address their own relationship to the harder economic realities of production and the welfare of the national community. It examines three principal areas, the first being global conditions at the end of the century with emphasis on the United States and occasional reference to the demands that country will make on Canadian resources. The second area involves past, present and projected energy development in Canada and the environmental consequences of such changes. The third area is resource management generally, and the author argues that there is a need for a comprehensive overview in the country’s best interest. He stresses that technology exists for controlling virtually all forms of pollution, and that the issue is only one of priority in light of economic motivations.
