This is just plain interesting. The Blacksmith Institute, a New York-based environmental group, released a list of the world’s 10 most polluted places today.

And for all that gets written about our water quality – southern San Diego beaches are still closed today from the border to southern Imperial Beach – as well as pollution throughout the region, the list is a reminder that things could be worse here. Much worse. (We’re not on the list.)

The former Soviet republic is responsible for four of the top 10 spots: Places like Chernobyl, Ukraine. If you’re curious, the list can be found here.
