> W-O-W! 1. I am so glad New York City is not on the list... I think lots of people think it's really polluted and this is not saying it's not- we could all improve, but just because it is congested doesn't mean it's polluted. When you think about it- it's size is relatively small and there is an abundance of public transport- not to mention ease of walk-ability that makes a HUGE difference. 2. The USA holds 2 spots in the top 9- Los Angeles at #2, and Greater Phoenix (Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale) at #6. Russia also holds 2 spots. This is sad. We need to minimize all this pollution. Are you surprised by the top 9???
