Top 5 Green Presidents

Our friends over at TreeHugger came out with their ranking of the Top 5 Green Presidents. There was definitely one surprise. Drumroll, please...

5. Barack Obama - In progress, but given his 2011 State of Union, he's on track.

4. Bill Clinton - Increased protection of wetlands and funding for clean energy.

3. Richard Nixon - The surprise. Nixon signed the bills that established the EPA and Clean Air Act.

2. Jimmy Carter - Created Department of Energy with goal to promote clean energy.

1. Theodore Roosevelt - "Presidents don't get much greener than Teddy Roosevelt", says TreeHugger. 5 National Parks, creation of the U.S. Forest Service, and 150 million acres of timberland as public domain all came under Teddy.

What do you think of the list?
