Because gun laws can largely differ by state, I would like to take a look at a "per state" ranking/map compared to the United States as a whole. I also would like to include the fact that MANY countries could fit into the United States, and if you were to put their "gun injury and death rates" in an area the size of the United States, what would it look like compared to how the map looks right now in the U.S. number-wise.
"Dozens of cities and counties in California and elsewhere are already running on 100% clean electricity, and over 150 American cities and counties have set 100% clean energy goals. Meanwhile, the list of states committed to a 100% renewable energy future continues to grow.... Clean energy communities are finding that the benefits of switching to 100% renewable energy – including local job creation, clean air, and climate resilience – outweigh any modest price increases on utility bills. And as solar, wind and battery storage prices continue to fall, the math continues to move in renewables energy’s favor. Across the US, large-scale renewable energy generation is now beating coal on cost."
"A 100 percent renewable energy future is necessary not only for the climate, but also for local communities. Moving away from the current fossil fuel economy can make our communities healthier, reduce pollution, and create more and better jobs. It can take the burden off the backs of low-income communities and communities of color that have borne the worst impacts of the fossil fuel economy. A 100 percent renewable future can ensure that our energy economy is one that works for everyone, not just fossil fuel CEOs... We believe a 100 percent renewable energy future in the U.S. is not only possible, it’s exactly what we need to avoid the worst impacts of catastrophic climate change."
"The seriousness of air-pollution, climate, and energy-security problems worldwide requires a massive, virtually immediate transformation of the world’s energy infrastructure to 100% clean, renewable energy producing zero emissions. For example, each year, 4–7 million people die prematurely and hundreds of millions more become ill from air pollution... Fully implementing the roadmaps by 2050 avoids 1.5 degrees C global warming and millions of deaths from air pollution annually; creates 24.3 million net new long-term, full-time jobs; reduces energy costs to society; reduces power requirements 42.5%; reduces power disruption; and increases worldwide access to energy."
"The US power sector currently is comprised of a diverse portfolio of natural gas, coal, nuclear, hydro, wind, solar and biomass. However, as energy policy shifts resources, energy technology changes. For 100 percent renewables, that translates largely to hydro, solar, wind, battery storage and efficiency. This not only represents a loss of resource diversity, it constitutes a fundamental alteration in the nature of energy storage for an industrial economy... Moreover, coal, natural gas and nuclear afford states autonomy as the resources can be transported for power generation within a state’s economy. This autonomy is undermined by 100 percent renewables."
