Transcript rials for the manufacture of a number of products, of which about 400 different varieties are prepared in the United States of America. I will begin with the group of non-renewable power resources, classed also under the category of useful minerals. At the outset I must stress one particular feature in regard to their exploitation: what nature created in the course of many millions of years, man consumes in a very short time, measurable in years or decades, while the source of supply cannot be replenished. This naturally leads many people to entertain misgivings about the future and to speculate on the subject of how soon the mineral power resources will be exhausted. An attempt of this kind was made in 1924 by one who has since gained world notoriety as an enemy of the working class and a traitor to the country of the Soviets, Leonid Ramzin. He bases his calculations upon an estimated contemporary coal reserve of 7,398 billion tons, an annual world output of 1,300 million tons of coal, and a constant growth of consumption and consequent mining of coal, which he puts at 2 to 3 per cent per annum. Applying the principal of geometrical progression, he sets the date of the exhaustion of the world's reserve of coal at only 200 years hence. He admits that this date will vary in accordance with the proportionate growth in the worlds output of coal. Nevertheless, his progression formula remains the same, as it applies to a small number of centuries. I believe any attempt to set a date for the exhaustion of the coal reserves is entirely futile. To begin with, we do not yet know our actual reserves of coal in view of insufficient geological surveys on the subject. Until 1915 our coal resources were estimated at 234 billion tons. The opening of the Kuznetz Basin doubled this figure. In per- 13
