NORTH AMERICAN ENERGY—2006
Three Governments Offer a New Self-Portrait
Joseph M. Dukert
A little less than four years ago, Canada, Mexico, and the United States posed deliberately for their first-ever, official self-portrait showing where each stood in regard to energy—and what was being done (for their mutual benefit) to collaborate more closely. This important, jointly produced document was issued in three languages (and entitled in English, North America—The Energy Picture). Now, members of the North American Energy Working Group (NAEWG) have released their updated version of that snapshot in the form of a 94-page, multicolored report. It is a mix of good news, bad news, and lots of uncertainty.
