Top 10 Greenest Cities

What are the 10 greenest cities in America? Well, if you define "greenest" as cities with the greatest number of Energy Star-qualified buildings, the results may surprise you. Los Angeles heads the list, which is surprising to me because of its reputation for smog, while Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth are in the top five. It appears we Northerners have some catching up to do: New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Baltimore are nowhere to be found on the list.

LA is clean

It is surprising to see LA at the top of the list, but as you mentioned, it is computed by the number of Energy Star Qualified Buildings, which isn't surprising as there are a lot of buildings in LA. So we may continue to see the smog, but at least they are trying.
