    Don’t understand how UK is 4th. Has poor air quality in cities, water quality is declining due to increased releases of sewage by privatised water companies. Badger culling has killed hundreds of thousands of a protected species & hunting still happens despite it being outlawed. Makes me wonder how much worse other countries can possibly be.

    Denmark should stop those mink farming and end these animals suffering. For the love of f***ing fashion.

    of course it is Azerbaijan ! It uses white phosphorus to burn forests in neighboring Republic of Artsakh as part of its military aggression.

    "Combat global warming"? You are in competition with the sun and you are going to lose. Denmark's position should be close to the bottom because their reduction of CO2 emissions means that trees, plants, grasses, crops will grow slower, the earth will be less green, and there will be less food for the world's growing population. Clever stuff I'm sure.

    Most of the cleanest countries use nuclear power plants but the Green Mafia won’t tell you that!

    I find when countries have clean air and lots of trees like Denmark or Canada where I am from.The people believe there are no environmental consequences for themselves and further believe the problems are entirely foreign.The governments encourage people to plunder and hunt the local environments.Denmark citizens just massacred a school of whales and Canada poisons wolfs and encourages trophy hunting among other exploits.While country's like India have strict laws about poaching.I don't find the ranking shows the full picture.

    Countries with capitalist, feee market economies are the cleanest. Communist/socialist countries are the most polluted.

    Sadly definitely not, America. Our administration is an abomination to the planet.
