U.S. Carbon "Footprints," State by State
Chaos came across this chart, which purports to rank the various states of the nation in carbon usage per capita, accounting for those with larger populations, like, for example, California. Sure enough, Texas is one of the worst (or maybe the worst) states in the nation, having an extremely large population with astoundingly large carbon emissions. Those who actually reside here should not be surprised. To reiterate...geography matters, and will matter more later. Buy a globe, and start looking around.
