This recently created map’s source is the Vulcan Project, a wonderful and insightful scientific inquiry into the spatial patterns of co2 pollution in the United States. I took their excel summary by county, feeling it would be sufficient to drum up an interesting mashup. On top of it I put the point sources (mostly power plants) that I got from the EIA. And then of course the congressional districts. Zoom in on the map and you can see who’s district you’re looking at.
There’s lots of potential ways to classify this data. I debated about showing a per capita map. If there’s enough interest I’ll add it. But for now, raw totals for county should be ok. As always, these maps work best in firefox.
