This investigation looks to observe how the growing number of environmental interest groups in the United States has impacted the average amount of CO2 produced in each state. This study aims to determine what factors render these groups either effective or ineffective at decreasing the amount of CO2 pollution. The investigation will rely on several sources including two data sets that measure these values over the past 10 years. The end goal is to discover if interest groups really do make a significant difference when it comes to protecting the environment from human pollution.
