Grist: NYC is Not One of the World’s Greenest Cities
Grist recently produced a list of the world's 15 greenest cities. Streetsblog favorites Copenhagen, Curitiba, London, and Bogotá all made the grade. StreetFilms' posterchild Portland captured the number two spot right behind geothermal-powered Reykjavik, Iceland. San Francisco and Austin were the only other U.S. cities to make the list with Chicago meriting runner-up status.
One notable omission: New York City.
What do you think about that? As much as I gripe about how much better New York City could be doing -- that's pretty much my day job -- I still think there's a very strong case to be made for New York as the greenest city in America.
