Chart of Rail per Thousand People in EU and US Regions

The chart above shows miles of rail per thousand people in EU and US regions.  It's rare to see the EU and US regions be so similar to each other.  Usually, the regions of one superstate clump together but in this metric there is a weaving back and forth between EU and US regions.

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 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 Road to Rail Ratios in EU and US Regions

The chart above shows the ratio of the road network to the rail network in every EU and US region.  The larger the ratio, the more prevalent roads are over rail in the region.  For instance, the Eastern EU has nearly 10 times more kilometers of road for every kilometer of rail.  Not surprisingly, all US regions have high road to rail ratios while only one EU region rivals them: the Southern EU.
