California vs Oklahoma

There are many things to consider and compare when deciding to move to another location. One has to consider the climate, cultures, economics, and agriculture. Some states are so different, they don’t seem like they’re in the same country. This essay will compare and contrast the vastly different states of Oklahoma and California.
Let’s take a journey to the State of California. According to the California Travel & Tourism article, “Lucky us and Lucky You,” California’s motto is “Eureka”, which means, “I have found it.” The climates in California range from cool wintry weather in the north, to sunny and hot weather in the south.

“The State of California believes that, by embracing our people, we also embrace their culture, lifestyle, language and religion”. (California Travel, 2008)
California is responsible for 13 percent of the United States gross domestic product. California also carries the sixth highest tax burden of the fifty states (California Travel, 2008). One problem California has is its tax base is paid by a small portion of its wealthy citizens. Three percent of the state’s richest taxpayers paid sixty percent of all state taxes.

This is why, all over the state, you can meet people with a unique sense of determination. Oklahoma’s climate is prone to severe weather. Most of the state lies in an area known as Tornado Alley characterized by frequent interaction between cold and warm air masses producing severe weather (Oklahoma, 2008). An average of 54 tornadoes strike the state per year—one of the highest rates in the world. “Because of its position between zones of differing and prevailing temperatures, winds, and weather patterns within the state can vary widely between relatively short distances (Oklahoma, n.d.).” The weather in Oklahoma as indicated previously may be considered harsh by people that do not live in the state, just as the earthquakes in California might be by people that do not reside within its borders.
Oklahoma is also known as the “Bible Belt” because it...
