The Dirt
does admit a fondness for lists of all types, and so can’t help himself but to list Popular Science magazine’s recent list of “America’s 50 Greenest Cities.” The magazine used survey data and government statistics in over 30 categories to come up with their criteria that boiled down to four metrics: electricity, transportation, “green living,” and “recycling and green perspective.”

Here’s their top ten list:

1. Portland, OR
2. San Francisco, CA
3. Boston, MA
4. Oakland, CA
5. Eugene, OR
6. Cambridge, MA
7. Berkeley, CA
8. Seattle, WA
9. Chicago, IL
10. Austin, TX
