How green is Colorado?

“The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” is a common phrase. Apparently, the state on the other side of the state line is also greener.

Kansas came out on top in an environmental health survey.

Colorado isn’t so green, at least according to measurements by MPHonline.

All 50 states and the District of Columbia are ranked in seven areas including mass transit, renewables, recycling, water and air quality, and CO2 emissions. When all the data is crunched, Colorado isn’t the best, but it isn’t the worst.

Colorado lost points for recycling, renewables and emissions. The state’s best scores are for air quality and water quality. In several individual categories Colorado topped the No. 1 state.

The online graphic is interactive, so anyone can dig into the details for every state and the District of Columbia. Guess which state ranks worst overall?
