SwedenEdit

What caused Sweden to rank 4th? If its capital, Stockholm, ranked first as the best city, than why didn't the whole country get 1st? - 209.166.67.46 01:53, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

FinlandEdit

The greenest capital does not automagically give you the title of the greenest country. Logic, my dear Swedes, is a great thing. The rural areas, should you have any, do matter. As for my fellow Finns, my sincerest congratulations. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.163.16.203 (talk) 06:41, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
