Vancouver draws 90 percent of its power from natural sources and is the largest user of hydroelectric power.

By Metro Newspaper Services, Published: Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Thoughts of a greener earth may call to mind rolling pastures and snow-topped mountains. Certainly the wide-open spaces of the planet are eco-friendly, but don't rule out cities for their share of "green."

There are many cities around the world that do their parts to make this planet a better place. And with thousands to millions occupying these close-contained areas, every little bit helps.

According to research as recent as 2009, here are the top picks for the most environmentally friendly cities across the planet.

10. Sydney, Australia. Sydney employs many green initiatives, including innovative food-waste management and raised awareness of global warming. Australia also was the first to reduce usage of inefficient, energy-hogging light bulbs.

9. Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador. When natural disasters devastated the city in the late 1990s, the government instituted a plan to rebuild the city in a more sustainable way. The city is marketing itself as a destination for eco-tourists.

8. San Francisco, Calif. Nearly 20 percent of the city is devoted to parks and green spaces. Also, more than half of all residents bike, walk or take public transportation to work every day.

7. London, England. Under London's Climate Action Plan, the city will switch 25 percent of its power to locally generated, more-efficient sources, cut CO2 emissions by 60 percent within the next 20 years, and offer incentives to residents who improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

6. Copenhagen, Denmark. Copenhagen has won awards for cleaning up its waterways. It has one of the highest concentrations of cyclists.

5. Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver draws 90 percent of its power from natural sources and is the largest user of hydroelectric power.

4. Malmoe, Sweden. This city is known for its extensive green spaces and parks. It is rebuilding using innovative designs that employ green methods of building and design.

3. Curitiba, Brazil. Curitiba boasts one of the best bus systems in the world, enabling residents to save on energy by using public transportation. Parks are kept tidy by lawn-eating sheep.

2. Portland, Oregon. Portland is the first U.S. city to enact a plan to reduce CO2 emissions. It has 92,000 acres of green space. It is touted as one of the greenest places to live.

1. Reykjavik, Iceland. This city earns the No. 1 spot by using hydrogen-fueled buses and renewable energy provided by geothermal and hydropower sources. In addition, Reykjavik plans to be fossil-fuel-free by 2050.

It's 10:57 tuesday night and nobody is in the office and I have free range. As soon as I get my leaves on a camera I'll take some pictures of these things the R&D guys are working on. Its sort of a weird ring thing. They have been working on them for months! Coffee machine is working (is that cannibalistic)? Not sure but I need the caffeine. Become a fan at Pissedoff Plant.com on facebook.

Plant Cam" working, the masons are building my new lair. (insert evil laugh here) Soon I will move in. "Plant Cam" may need to install Active-X to work...It's a conspiracy I tell you! I'm putting world domination on hold until I get the coffee machine working! Still no water from the R&D guys, thank god I'm part cactus!

One of my minions is building the self watering system... Soon I will be able to water myself! World domination HAS BEGUN!
