The United States and Canada share an atmospheric environment and an energy market. The important concerns stemming from this continental perspective are the focus of this volume, which investigates specific bilateral energy-environment issues and the Canada-United States relationship. One topic explored is the extent to which cooperation is possible between Canada and the United States in environmental and energy policymaking in each of the key energy sectors. The book also studies such topics as how decisionmakers in Canada and the United States choose between competing policy options and what mechanisms they employ to coordinate policies. Other chapters investigate strategies for curbing acid rain, siting hazardous waste, and dealing with the negative by-products of energy development. The ecological dangers that face our continent and the world ultimately demand comprehensive policy and behavior changes of national, continental, and global scope by governments, businesses, and private citizens. The articles in this volume approach this theme of binational energy and environment issues from a variety of perspectives. Some offer policy suggestions to government and business, while others concentrate on the more technical aspects of alternative behavior patterns.
