Mother Jones has an investigation of Walmart in its March/April issue, and it comes with some pretty stark statistics. Among the facts on display in MoJo‘s chart: Walmart stores use five times as much electricity as the state of Vermont; Walmart’s net sales exceed the GDP of Norway; Walmart stores’ combined square footage dwarfs Manhattan; and Walmart stores emit more CO2 than the 50 lowest-emitting countries combined.
