Very true :) I thought there'd be a little more variety when I started making it, but everything east of the Rockies is 4 or less. I did however expect California and Alaska to be at the top.

I'd be interested to see this quiz corrected for size. Most distinct types of climates per square mile or something like that.

I feel like Köppen didn't give California enough climates. For instance the coast from LA to the Oregon border as well as a lot of the interior of the state is Warm Summer Mediterranean even though the climates are very different
