Concord, NH - If you think New Hampshire is "green enough," think again. The National Environmental Trust has come out with a new report that says last year New Hampshire’s population of 1.3 million produced more global warming pollution than 145 million people in 47 developing countries put together. Report author Peter Altman believes it's time to recognize our impact on global climate change.

"Another way to look at it is that New Hampshire contributed 111 times more pollution per person than the developing nations."

Altman says America's leadership in greenhouse gas production means we must also lead the cleanup, but the White House argues that moves to curtail greenhouse gases could cripple the economy. Altman disagrees.

"The idea that dealing with climate change will sink the economy is really nonsense. And in fact there are so many opportunities that get created when a massive new investment of this scale has to take place."

The report also found that nationally, 42 states each emit more carbon dioxide than 50 developing countries combined.
