We're #3! We're #3!

According to SustainLane 2006 surveys, Latte Land, aka Jet City, aka Seattle, is number 3 in sustainability. Yet another log on the fire in the heated rivalry between SEA and contenders #2 SFO and #1 PDX. Can't you just see those Pearl District denizens with their smirks over cups of Stumptown Coffee? (I kid because I love!)

The SustainLane 2006 US city rankings of the 50 largest cities is the nation’s most complete report card on urban sustainability. The rankings explain how people’s quality of life and city economic and management preparedness are likely to fare in the face of an uncertain future. These indicators gauge, for instance, which cities’ public transit, renewable energy, local food, and development approaches are more likely to either limit or intensify the negative economic and environmental impacts of fossil fuel dependence.
