How much of America would look like this, mapped this way?
I think American’s would be shocked by the level of degradation the regime of single use has wrought on our landscape (whether industrial, agricultural, or residential), still not all of America is this highly industrialized and neglected as East Chicago’s “Black Hole”. What this framework doesn’t reveal in is the magnitude of a use. For instance BP, ArcelorMittal, and US Steel are counted only once.
Even though this graphic is reporting the “ugly” it is beautiful.
