“US Ranks 24th In The World On Environmental Performance”

“Analysis by Yale and Columbia universities shows US lagging far behind other industrialized countries in a range of categories”.

“The US is far behind other industrialized nations on environmental performance and now ranks 24th in the world, according to a new analysis by Yale and Columbia universities.

Denmark came in first place, followed by Luxembourg and Switzerland. The United Kingdom ranked fourth.

The findings come as the Trump administration has continued to weaken environmental protections in a quest to relax rules on industry and expand fossil fuel development which threatens to put the country even further behind its peers.”
