United States of the Environment


After the United States Of Awesome and the United States Of Shame maps, now we have the latest iteration: The United State of the Environment.



Where do we lead? Washington has the most organic apples. Our close neighbor Idaho has the smallest per capita carbon footprint. So how does Washington not excel? The most invasive snails. And Idaho received the lowest per capita public transit funding.

Visit MNN for a larger image of both graphics.
After the jump, check each state's superatives.
