I'm surprised that Denver is rated higher than Colorado Springs! ...although during hot high pressure systems with no wind, I have seen a bit of haze over downtown Colorado Springs area (not a big area).

Denver being rated at 91/100 quality is a big change from the '70s when at one time it was considered as having the worst air pollution in the nation!

Here is an interesting chart on Denver: Denver - 2008 US Cities Sustainability Ranking by SustainLane.com

Of course, I take the charts with a grain of salt: Honolulu rated #8 for least Metro traffic congestion and Colorado Springs rated #11 for least Metro traffic congestion....NO WAY! Have driven in both in 2008 and Honolulu is much worse than Colorado Springs trying to get in/out of downtown.
