Happily we aren't one of them! At least for the time being: In a speech in Iowa Tuesday, former GOP House Speaker, possible 2012 presidential contender, and past Sierra contributor (!)

Data in this infographic come from the Blacksmith Institute, in collaboration with Green Cross Switzerland. You can download the full report here.
