Chart of Transportation Based Emissions of Carbon Dioxide in EU and US States

The chart above shows transportation based carbon dioxide emissions in EU and US states.  One-quarter of all carbon dioxide emissions from transportation use in the EU and the US come from four states (out of 78): Texas, California, Florida, and Germany.  In addition, Texas and California are the only two states that emit more than 100 million metric tons.

Chart of Transportation Based Emissions of Carbon Dioxide in EU States

The chart above shows transportation based carbon dioxide emissions in EU states.  One-third of all carbon dioxide emissions from transportation use come from two countries: Germany and the United Kingdom, adding in France and Italy makes up more than half of the transportation based carbon dioxide emitted within the EU.

Chart of Rail Length per Square Mile of Land in EU and US Regions

The chart above shows the miles of rail per square mile of land in EU and US regions.  The Europeans have more rail per unit of land than we Americans do which is not surprising at all.  What is surprising is that the EU's region with the least rail coverage rivals the US's region with the most rail coverage.

Chart of Rail Length per Square Mile of Land in US Regions

The chart above shows the miles of rail per square mile of land in US regions.  Three regions are all within a tenth of a mile of each other while the West only has a tenth of a mile of rail for every square mile of territory.

Chart of Rail Length per Square Kilometer of Land in EU Regions

The chart above shows the kilometers of rail per square kilometer of land in EU regions.  Clearly there is a sharp divide between the Western and Eastern EU and the Northern and Southern EU, with the former having around a-tenth of a kilometer of rail per square kilometer of territory and the latter having less than half that.

Chart of Rail Length per Square Mile of Land in EU and US States

The chart above shows the miles of rail per square mile of land in EU and US states.  The ten states with the greatest railway coverage are all in the EU.  Illinois, which is the US state with the greatest railway coverage ranks 11th.  On the flip side, the 14 states with the least railway coverage are all in the US with Greece, the EU state with the least rail per unit of land coming in at 15th lowest (excluding Hawaii, Malta, and Cyprus which have no rail networks).

Chart of Rail Length per Square Kilometer of Land in EU States

The chart above shows the kilometers of rail per square kilometer of land in EU states.  Four states (Luxembourg, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Germany) are far above their peers in railway coverage.  Germany is especially impressive considering the large size of the state.

Chart of Rail Length per Square Mile of Land in US States

The chart above shows the miles of rail per square mile of land in US states.  It's surprising to see that Western states have so little rail compared to the size of their area as rail has been romantically associated with the frontier lands.
