Population, Energy, & Climate Change - An Interactive Map for 50 US States

This interactive map of the U.S. shows the population and energy factors that link them to climate change, including: population numbers, population growth rate, housing units (indicator of energy consumption per household and household appliances), energy consumption per-capita, carbon dioxide (C02) emissions per-capita, and vehicle miles traveled per-capita (VMT), indicating fossil fuel burning which contributes to CO2 emissions. It shows how the nation, its regions, and each of the 50 states compare. Click on each state or region in the map below to see how they stack up.
