Are we smart or what? Well, duh

Spokane is smarter than Tacoma, Everett, Bellevue and Salem, but not smarter than Eugene or Seattle.

At least, that’s what the Natural Resources Defense Council says in its latest lists of “smarter cities,” which ranks small, medium and large cities on the environmental intelligence.

Spokane ranked sixth among medium cities, just below Eugene and above Huntsville, Ala. Tacoma may be closing in on Spokane in population, but it’s No. 54 on the NRDC. Boise? It’s No. 52.

Don’t get too big-headed, though. Seattle ranked No. 1 among the large cities.
