Infographic: United States of the Environment Mother Nature Network (MNN)

Take a look at this interesting infographic of every U.S. state’s environmental strengths and weaknesses.  http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/responsible-living/stories/infographic-united-states-of-the-environment

Every U.S. state is designated as first place in some environmental or public health category and 50th in another.  Mother Nature Network (MNN) created the infographic to reveal how each state excels or lags in science, nature, public health, or social justice.  The comments are worth reading as well because not everyone agrees with MNN’s classifications.  The discussions can stimulate thinking about our carbon footprints.

Some of the undefined acronyms are defined here for ease of understanding. 

  • LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
  • Superfund is the name given to the environmental program established to address abandoned hazardous waste sites. 
  • Dioxin is defined as a highly toxic compound produced as a byproduct in some manufacturing processes, notably herbicide production and paper bleaching. It is a serious and persistent environmental pollutant.

Go here to see the sources of MNN’s statistics and to learn more.

If you are of these people, Diflucan Side Effects rest assured that ordering online is just the same as ordering from a physical pharmacy. The Generic Lexapro only difference that you will experience is that you do not get to actually see us. The Albuterol Nebulizer services, however, are just the same. The products are also just as reliable and genuine. That is something that you can hold onto.
