    The United States of Toxins - NH substantially lower than other states

    Substantially less toxins are released in New Hampshire than in other states.

    The United States of Toxins
    https://blog.odetoclean.com/the-unit...s-1e219e5a701f

    Every year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires most large industrial facilities to report the volume of toxic chemicals they release into the environment.

    The EPA takes this data and consolidates it into the Toxic Releases Inventory (TRI), which is then used to set environmental policies in place.

    At Ode, we work on creating low-cost, environmentally-conscious alternatives to chemical manufacturing. So, we got interested in the information buried in these massive, hard to understand reports. What are the most commonly released toxins? In which states and cities are the most chemicals emitted? Which industries contribute the most to this pollution?

    Summary of findings:

    As a state, Alaska produces the most toxins (834 million pounds)
    Zinc and lead compounds (common products of the mining industry) are the most common toxins
    Metal mining accounts for 1.5 billion pounds of toxins, while chemicals (515 million) ranks second
    On a county level, the Northwest Arctic of Alaska leads the list, but multiple Nevada counties round out the top 5
    Kotzebue, AK produces the most toxins as a city (756 million pounds), and Indianapolis, IN (10.9 million) produces the most out of the top 100 most populous cities
    The United States of Toxins

    We began by tallying total toxin releases by state. This includes all toxins across all industries. In the map below, darker colors indicate a higher total volume of toxins (in pounds).


    There are 100s of cities around the United States where more toxins were released in 2016 than in the entire state of New Hampshire.

    The EPA and "big businesses" get together and come up with numbers they want to publicize...

    I give both of them failing marks for honesty.....Combined that's a failing failure.

    Interesting point Tod. I am not a YUGE fan of the EPA or crony capitalism.

    I don't like this comparison based on weight alone.

    1)At the very minimum, do lbs/sq mile or lbs/inhabitant or lbs/bln $ in economic activity
    2)Specify for different types of toxins. There definitely are things you want less than others.

    This trying to find the truth in any single number kind of thing is bugging me, where is the world going, really ?
