New York City is Greener that Hastings, NE (TreeHugger)
Yahoo may have named Hastings, NE the greenest city in America, but a new study proves them wrong;. bucolic little towns like Hastings or Bedford Falls or Grover’s Corners are less green that good old New York City. It appears that cities are like mammals, conforming to the phenomenon of “biological scaling”- the larger the organism, the more efficiently it uses energy. The elephant is far more efficient than the mouse.
