Bu dah, No one is promoting dirty air but you. In typical liberal idiocy you make statements thatRead More doesn't exist. Take your fight to china and India, Not to mention, no warming in over 16 yrs now. Human involvement in the past climate shift does not exist. Why don't you develop a butt filter for cows if you're soooo worried about air quality

Wait, why is population density BAD? That makes no sense. Density = more walkability, more publicRead More transit options, less dependence on the car.
Lynne Bonnett April 21, 2014 at 10:51 am
Thank you for doing this. It's pretty clear that large cities with high population densities rankRead More very low on the green scale just based upon population density, trash per person and low recycling rate. Others might argue that urban centers allow people to get around more easily without a car and promote mass transit and transit oriented business development. What we do with our trash is something we can change right now by recycling; much of it could be reused, creating jobs and keeping trash out of the incinerators whose toxic emissions cause a lot of illness in our urban centers. I also don't think using Arbor Day is a good measure of Tree City- it is only 0-1 points but it is an artificial measure in my opinion. In any case, keep up the good work!

Flipped through the top/bottom, a few others. No points at all for "Tree City." Are treeRead More programs superfluous in a leafy state like CT or has the Tree City program not taken root (for whatever reason), and therefore is not a meaningful metric in these rankings?

Anthony - remove your mouth from the tail pipe for a minute.... A research firm has named theRead More zero-emission 2014 Nissan Leaf the cleanest production vehicle in the US, and that's figuring in the full, wheel-to-well lifetime impact of the car on the environment. The Automotive Science Group (ASG) studied more than 1,300 automobiles with at least four seats across nine categories, measuring everything from the amount of fuel needed to run the car during its lifetime to the extraction of natural resources to build the thing in the first place to end-of-life processing. ASG calls the process "wildly complex." The battery-electric Leaf, with its 84-mile single-charge range, took top honors overall, but there were other highly ranked vehicles in different categories. ASG also said that the Mitsubishi Mirage, with its sub-2,000-pound curb weight and 40 miles per gallon fuel economy, was the cleanest among gas-powered vehicles, while the Chevrolet Spark had the lowest cast of ownership over five years. Last month, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) put together its annual "Greenest" and "Meanest" (notice: we didn't say "Cleanest") lists and put the Leaf at number three. Topping that list was the Smart ForTwo ED battery-electric, but that was followed up by the Toyota Prius C compact hybrid, so fans of those vehicles can now start a healthy debate. The ACEEE uses data from the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board to compile its list. We have ASG's press release below.

DP that always makes me laugh also. Like because they can act, we should put more stock in what theyRead More say. Actually it's the opposite. The way they conduct themselves leaves me to believe they are not in contact with the real world.

I never want to be a burden on family..i have seen what happens when you work your whole life,Read More retire, have health insurance, pension, medicare, bank account , a house..and what's the first thing that happens when it's time to go into a nursing home? Insurance denies you any help to pay for the nursing home and your famiy is left spending all of the bank account, the Nursing home is drooling at the prospect of taking your house, the rest of the family is having enough pain of going thru the nursing home ordeal onbly to be treated like garbage by Insurance agencies and thieving nursing homes where the Aides treat your loved one like they are on an assembly line, the beds are thirty years old or more, don't have the proper updated facilities and the staff makes too much money for what they do. so when I die? toss me in the woods somewhere to rot, when I get feeble? push me off a cliff.

David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 01:39 pm
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.
