The Earth Day Network just released its Urban Environment Report ranking the environmental conditions of the top 72 cities in the US. The study takes into account 200 different factors and ranks for best conditions regarding toxics and waste, air quality, health and human services, parks and recreation, quality of life, drinking water, and global climate change. Oh boy, you're thinking. It's going to be so cool to see how San Francisco stands out, with a Mayor who brags about how clean and green the city is.

Good thing he's pledged to make it better. According to the weighted rankings, we're just above average. See for yourself.

At least we beat Detroit!
