Carbon Footprint by zipcode

Play around with this map and share any observations. A few of my takeaways:

Cities are often green, but the suburbs around them are red.

Rural areas are often green, the main exception being the industrial agriculture in the great plains is very carbon intensive.

Los Angeles and California as a whole are greener than I would have expected
