Where does your state excel environmentally?

This fantastic infographic (click on it for larger version) courtesy of the Mother Nature Network, is sure to give you the warm fuzzies when you see what your state contributes to the health and wealth of our nation. Be forewarned though, scrolling down to the second infographic on "How does your state not excel?" may quickly rob you of those warm fuzzies.

Noteworthy observations: West Virginia is applauded for paying coal miners well but have the most coal mining deaths. Oklahoma may be fueling their vehicles with fruits and vegetables. And don't get too excited about that Texas wind power because they also have the most CO2 emissions.
