Hi Res Carbon Footprint Map, Good Grief New Jersey is mostly all red!

Ok, ok, armpit of the nation jokes aside, New Jersey appears to be almost all red and orange on the map plotting carbon dioxide emisions. I guess Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island don't fare any better and we do get a lot of downwind pollution from other states but we surely need to do better.

Hi Les,
I knew NJ was polluted but didn't realize the enormity. We gotta get out of this place. There are too many cases of cancer here. There seems to be many clusters of hotspots and it seems everyone knows someone with cancer. I asked my wife's oncologist about why the seemingly disproportionate amount of cancer here and he replied "pollution"!

Yes, I saw this too. Definitely not good news. And Bergen County where I'm from is the darkest part of the state.

I think that the cancer problem is everywhere though. Look at all the news all of a sudden regarding bad plastic and PVC. Then there's pressure treated wood, lawn chemicals, food additives. It's all around us and it's really sad.
