New, amazingly comprehensive Urban Environment Report put out by the Earth Day Network ranks 72 American cities according to their green quotient.

Topping the list of green go-getters is Fargo, North Dakota followed by Burlington, Portland and Colorado Springs. The worst laggards are El Paso, Cleveland, and Miami, with Detroit finishing dead last.
