Write a 1,500-2,400 word (5-8 page) paper comparing three states’energy profiles and energy-related CO2 emissions. The paper will compare Georgia, a state southeastern coastal state (Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, or Texas), and one state selected from the remainder of the United States. Using data drawn from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the paper will focus on major differences in energy use among the three states in the areas of electricity generation, renewables, nuclear power, and transportation. To enable fairer comparisons, most energy and CO2 emissions data should be converted to per capita numbers: divide by state-level 2014 population.
Preferred states are: Georgia, Mississippi, and California
Use the following links to find data for each state.
