What Country Is the Best at Protecting the Environment?

"We're the only country that has a significant amount of people that don't believe in climate change," said Marc Levy, deputy director of Columbia University’s Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN). "The central challenge of our time is to help people understand what's happening around them." 
 We dropped to 61st place (from 39th last year).

Here are a few of the countries ahead of the U.S.:
9) Cuba
10) Colombia
36) Dominican Republic
43) Mexico
60) Paraguay

Worse than the U.S., you ask?
62) Brazil
78) Iran
141) Ethiopia

I sure hope we can climb up this list during my lifetime.
