Newark, NJ came in a close second.  New York City came in 12th.

The report was compiled by the lawn care company LawnStarter.  It looked at various data for 152 cities in the U.S.

The report cited Houston's petrochemical facilities for polluting the air and it cited Houston's high greenhouse gas emissions.  It also noted that Houston has a big cockroach issue.
