best and worst: the state of the united states

mother nature network put together this cool info graphic about what each of the 50 states is best at and what they are worst at…

the ‘good’ covers everything from most organic lentils to best paid coal miners to cleanest teeth

the ‘bad’ includes fewest librarians per capita, most smog, and most avalanche deaths

One thought on “best and worst: the state of the united states

  1. I wonder what the qualifications were for “organic” in terms of organic livestock because, since there are no standards, many animals are still living in feedlots and factory farms and are organic only in that they’re fed “organic” corn. so, those pros on the map may not be as positive as presented.
    just putting it out there.
