I'm trying to figure out which state is the most polluted over all. I keep finding info on which one has the most Superfund sites, but want to know more beyond that. I'm just curious to see where my home state of NJ stands, because the pollution here seems to either be completely absent, or hardcore lets ruin this for all future generations.

Whichever state is the most polluted should receive the award as being the most pro-business, pro-American state.

I am hoping this is sarcasm. I highly doubt you have been in or lived in polluted areas.

Indiana ranks the highest of any state in the country in terms of carbon emissions per capita. You can thank filthy coal for that.

Jersey is toward the top of all the worst lists except for animal waste.
Tennessee is not bad at all comparatively.
