My colleague Helen Kang, director of the Environmental Justice Clinic at Golden Gate University, just sent me a link to this article on Forbes.com proclaiming Atlanta the nation's most toxic city. But, look out Matt Festa, Houston's hot on Atlanta's heels at number three on the list. Take heart, though, Matt. Houston's air is so polluted that it's become a world hot spot for air pollution research. It's always good to be cutting edge!
The article lauds New York as less toxic due to its excellent public transportation system (and related density) and Portland as a model of land use planning. This lends even more support to the premise of Professor Nolon's article, which I blogged about earlier today.
