Is a Republican town in Kansas the greenest in the world?

Is Greensburg, a Republican-voting town in Kansas, where many people are sceptical of climate science, actually the greenest town in the world?

On May 4, 2007, Greensburg, Kansas, was destroyed by an F5 tornado. Almost every building in town was leveled. Eleven were killed, dozens injured. Yet within days, the people of Greensburg had committed to rebuild their town, and to rebuild green. Today, Greensburg is the greenest town in the USA, and maybe the world.
