Also the second greenest in the world, Portland, OR takes the top spot in the U.S.
It was the first city in the U.S. to create a comprehensive plan to reduce CO2 emissions. It also has an extensive public transportation system with light-rail, buses, bike lanes, etc. allowing for less cars on the road.
This is actually a pretty subjective thing to rank, but Popular Science did a rather comprehensive ranking in 2008. They tried to make it more objective than your usual ranking system by using scores corresponding to actual attributes. Here are the top five:
1. Portland, OR
2. San Francisco, CA
3. Boston, MA
4. Oakland, CA
5. Eugene, OR
(as a personal note, I’m glad that two of the three places I call my home, Portland and Eugene, made the top five!)
