This page contains two maps showing data about the amount of carbon emissions and uptake for each Indiana House and Senate district.
The color of each district represents whether the district emits or takes up more carbon. The greener the district, the more carbon is absorbed from the atmosphere. The redder the district, the more emissions exceed the uptake.

A little perspective on what a ton of carbon looks like:
A 2000 pound cube of graphite 2 1/2 feet on a side, or . . .
A 27 foot cube containing 2000 pounds of carbon in the form of carbon dioxide.
Note: The data shown is from 2010. The data representations in the maps have been derived from emission statistics gathered by county which has been mixed with satellite carbon uptake (or carbon sink) data from NASA's Terra satellite in units of 8 kilometers square. Because the two sets of data have different resolutions the data for individual districts involves some approximation.
