Hey, liberal Seattleites:
Is your fair city one of the "greenest" in the nation?

October 11, 2017




Liberal Seattle: it's pretty "green" although you couldn't tell it by looking at this aerial view of the city. CLICK TO ENLARGE
GREENEST CITIES

Chronicle staff

(NATIONAL)  --  The thing about places like Seattle - which some folks consider to be a dark, godless, disease infested enclave of steaming commie pinko liberal socialist bed-wetters where pimps and pushers suck the blood of the innocent while good men die young - is that they tend to be really into the "green' thing.

You know. Solar energy, energy conservation, compost piles in the backyard, drinking green tea, dying your household pets green, drinking green dye so you can urinate green just to show your friends how committed to the movement you are, that sort of thing.

Well now, turns out there is definitive proof about which liberal witch's dens are the "greenest" in America

And liberal Seattle isn't in the Top Ten...but just barely not there.

Seattle came in at number 11 of the Greenest Cities in America according to a new survey.

With October being National Energy Awareness Month and New York recently becoming the first city to unveil a plan that upholds the Paris Climate Agreement among nearly 250 cities that pledged to do so, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2017's Greenest Cities in America.

To determine which cities promote a “green” lifestyle, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 100 largest U.S. cities across 22 key indicators of environmental friendliness and sustainability. The data set ranges from greenhouse-gas emissions per capita to green job opportunities per capita to number of smart-energy policies and initiatives.
