We’re Number 45!!!

From Holden:

Researchers at Yale and Columbia rank the U.S. at number 45 out of 146 countries in the 2005 Index of Environmental Sustainability…

[W]hich ranks countries on their success at tasks like maintaining or improving air and water quality, maximizing biodiversity and cooperating with other countries “to manage common environmental problems.”

Japan, most West European countries, Botswana and the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan were ranked higher than the old U.S. of A.
