Which States Have Lowered Carbon Emissions Since 2005, Mapped
Not a day goes by without news of environmental degradation across the United States and the world. But, as Matador Network frequently reports, it’s not all bad news out there. The World Resources Institute recently released data from a study on the economic benefits of climate policy in the US, analyzing the change in each state’s emission levels. Between 2005 and 2017, 41 of the 50 states cut their emission levels, some quite drastically. Environmental publication Grist compiled an infographic based on the report, putting each state’s emissions reductions action into detail.
