When people think of Canada and then compare itto the United States of America, they always tend to think itis similar. At least I did until I started this project. I alwaysthought that Canada was a clone or mirror of America, but Iwas wrong. About 99.
75% of the Canadian people considerice as something that they use in a drink or something that isalways on the road that needs salt. For the rest of theCanadians, ice is a major barrier of life. The ice can be usedas a helpful thing to.
It could be crafted into a refrigerator. Itcould also be used as a racetrack for snowmobiles. Nowhow many ice refrigerators do you find in America? I dontthink the climate in America and support something like that.Eighty percent of Canada is in a subartic zone.
WhileAmerica sits comfortably in the tropical wet-dry tocontinental humid climate zone. The main population inCanada is rested in between the January temps. of -2F and14F. Whereas Americas main population is in the 41F to32F range. For Canada, the climate reaches the extremesduring winter. About 95% of Canada is 14F and below.Americas winter is about 23F-41F.
The dramaticdifference may have affected the difference of population.The average population in Canada is 26 people per mi. ,compared to 128 people per mi. in America. I think thatthe people are more densely populated in the US becausethe weather is more tolerable.
The weather also affects whatis grown and produced in the two countries. Canada growsTimber, sheep, corn, wheat and a little bit of grapes. ButAmerica produces sheep, timber grapes, citrus, cattle,wheat, cotton, sorghum, sugar cane Tabasco and corn. Asyou can see America produces a lot more than Canadadoes. Canadas climate prevents them from produces asmuch or having as much as a variety.
Half of Canadas landis forest and woodlands and the rest is non- argiculterable.When the area of Canada is 3,849,672 sq. mi., the countryloses out on a lot of production without that half. As forAmerica (3,732,396 sq. mi.
), half is livestock ranching andthe other half is mixed farming and livestock. So the mainproduction is livestock. The weather and climate provides aperfect environment for the livestock. The GDP is $611billion; $21,800 per capita, when America is $6.379 trillion;$24,700 per capita. The difference is immense.
America isproducing more while Canada is lacking the capability thatthe US has. Another factor the helps or holds down themanufacturing is precipitation. Canada receives about 20 to40 inches a year. Which helps the growth of the mainproducts, timber. The US has more of a larger range of 10to 120 inches.
In the 10 inches area, sheep and citrus isgrown. For Canada, the 20 inches area also produces sheepa long with cattle. The range of precipitation of Americacontributes to the diversity of products. Comparing Americato Canada is like looking at two completely different cars,one car has better features while the other doesnt havemuch. Although the two countries are located right next toeach other, they arent particularly the same. The main thingprevents Canada to have as much as America is its climate.
The cold climate provides an unargiculterable land. Lackinggood weather and good land prohibits Canada to have thepopulation that the US has. People go where there is a goodlife for them and Canada doesnt provide as much America.But I do have to say, they do have a good hockey andbaseball team.
