city, % green

Business Insider today linked to a survey of green life in cities, as a percentage.

Vancouver came in 2nd with 25.9%, Singapore 1st at 29.3%.

Some Google Earth images, not scaled to each other, colour not synced.

Vancouver. High rainfall, wealthy

Singapore. High rainfall, wealthy

The lowest % green capital cities I’ve seen so far have very little green.

Lima, Peru. Low rainfall, poor

La Paz, Bolivia. Low rainfall, poor

Because I haven’t been to the Middle East, I haven’t seen any low rainfall, rich, cities yet.

Here’s high rainfall, poor. Guatemala City
