You're kidding, right? No? Okay. I'd say Santa Barbara Ca. because there more people have their Guatemalan cleaning ladies sort the recycling stuff out than in any other city. And, there are more electric cars there than any place other than a golf course. And, there are more solar heated swimming pools than you will find in any other city.

Wait a minute, do you mean actually "green?" That is a tough one. Hmmmmm, I'd have to go with Dublin Ireland.

No, seriously, the real answer is Harare, Zimbabwe with the lowest per capital consumption of energy (and everything else) in the world. And that's the key. Start with Harare and work up until you find a place that you won't be eaten by savages on your first day there and that will be the "greenest" city you can live in. For my part, I kind of like being able to turn on the lights at any time during the day and water my lawn when I feel like it.

Thatís hard to say what cities would be green without knowing more about each cityís operations. To me, (and I could be wrong) green is more likely to be progressive and on the left side of politics, thus cities that come to mind would be Portland and others in Oregon.
