Map of Carbon Dioxide Releases in the United States


A new map and the accompanying data is available for all those interested in the geography of American carbon dioxide. The results show the area between Boston and Washington is the worst with urban centers extending to the Mississippi River and into Texas forming an archipelago of CO2 releases. The Interior West, lacking in major cities for the most part, has low amounts of the greenhouse gas. Despite the efforts of California to stem its pollution, high levels are found in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Below is a YouTube on making the map

The map itself seems rather obvious, but I'd like to see a map of CO2 emissions per capita.

Interesting, but as I notice so often, while this map is identified as the United States, it only shows the lower 48.
