How Green is Your State?

Each state was ranked in six equally weighted categories: carbon footprint, air quality, water quality, hazardous waste management, policy initiatives and energy consumption. Vermont, Oregon and Washington were top ranked. Texas was low-middle (34 out of 50).

Where is your state on this list?

So who's at the bottom? Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Indiana and, at No. 50, West Virginia. All suffer from a mix of toxic waste, lots of pollution and consumption and no clear plans to do anything about it. Expect them to remain that way.
