Re:

 It's funny you say that. I bet anyone who did read this was thinking the same thing.

 Where are N.J. and N.Y. on these lists?

I'm actually surprised . . . and glad . . . New Jersey wasn't on either list!

I don't know how they will take on but electric cars or part electric are subsidized here.

 Of course we do not travel the distance that you guys take for granted.  The fogs used to be really nasty but since coal is not burned and local and garden fires are frowned on I have seen a remarkable improvement. I always think of the USA products as being ultra clean.

Good post.  One should keep these things in mind and take it personally, not just depending on someone else to make it better.

Interesting information.  I think the worst air quality problems we get where I live in Central Texas come from allergens and smoke from fires in Mexico....at least that is what I was told, but I haven't done any research.

Re:

 Kabu, the research came from a handful of secondary sources. Most turned out very

 simular. Being this was such basic research, I'll give you two examples: 1) Jen Alic of

 Oil Price.com seemed to be spot on. 2) But ''AFOP'' seemed to be a little bias, and I

 don't recall any authors names were listed. Usually I'm a little leery of online

 research. I try to follow the Chicago style methods.

Re: Re: v1

  Jeansaw I'd like to further comment on your question because of a (my) typo error.

 ''FL has been 'transitioning' to natural gas.'' Currently 80% of FL Power Plants are

  powered by natural gas. Although the remaining part of the comment is correct, in

  detail: Sulfer Dioxide emissions are decreasing, and Carbon Dioxide emissions are

  increasing.

Hmnn I would have thought perhaps malaysia and Thialand may have been here perhaps some of these are in the next 10. Glad to see australia's name not there. we use a lot of coal. Interesting post and i wonder who comes up with these places.

Re: Vt

  China has made some attempts at implementing alternative energies. But your

  certainly right about the others.

Re: v1

 Jeansaw, most of the pollution in FL is coming from their powerplants, coal, oil. And

 the FL pop. has increased so much in recent years. So as you said cars add too the

 problem.

Not a surprise having China as the big polluter

i found this so interesting, as i live in florida and we do not have a lot of industry. we do have tourism.  i guess most of our pollution comes from cars.

I would have guessed all but South Korea.  GA is anti-solar energy.  Check Clark Howard web site on this.  If you produce solar energy, the power companies get freebies.  They will not pay for the power above what you have produced.  At least that was the case as of last year.

You raise some good points. One problem is that the worst polluter, China, is least likely to do anything in alleviating the problem; neither are some of the others, namely India, Russia, Iran and Saudi Arabia

The rankings do not surprise this Marylander.
