<div class="field field-name-field-map-byline field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div  class="field-item odd">This GIF shows how CO2 emissions vary across the United States. Each bar represents a 50x50 kilometer grid. Bar height is proportional to total CO2 emissions and bar color represents the type of CO2 emissions. Red bars represent proportionately more CO2 emissions from electricity generation (coal, gas and oil). Green bars represent CO2 emissions by other sources (such as ethanol production, iron-steel production and cement manufacture). Yellow/orange bars signify a mix of electricity and non-electricity sources. | GIF courtesy of Los Alamos National Lab.</div></div></div>
