This is an update of the post from 2007 titled: Mirror, Mirror On The Wall, Who Are The Greenest (States) Of All. That earlier post graphic was based on a multi-parameter index ranking. This new one is simpler:- the graphic you see here shows state ranking based on per capita emissions. The greener the bar, the better they are.
Via::Eredux, United States Energy Usage Comparison ChartWhich ten states are at the bottom of the heap, so to speak, in terms of per capita carbon emissions?
Here they are. The states whose Congressional delegations will fight climate action tooth and nail. The states where coal lobbyists will spend a lot on TV and radio advocacy campaigns.
More fun with ranking.
