The environment pertains to the amount of pollution you have in your city & how clean your city is. I recommend a few things to raise the environmental desirability of your cities:

1) If you're building a mostly high density city with a downtown and mass transit, I reccommend using subways or light rails. This keeps a lot of cars off the street and thus keeps your city air cleaner.

2) If you have the money, try enacting some of the city ordinances in your financial menu. Some that come to mind are the Emissions Ordinance and the Clean Air Ordinance. If these are enacted, they will significantly reduce air pollution and improve the urban environment.

3) Keep industrial areas and landfills away from commercial and residential development. Having heavy industry right next to commercial or residential zones may lead to your environment levels decreasing. It really also helps contain smoke/air pollution if your industrial parks and neighborhoods are situated away from the population.

4) Try making your cities greener. This includes developing some decently sized urban parks, with trees and ponds, etc. I highly recommend using some of Cycledogg's or the SFBT tree models to beautify your city and keep it green. This should keep your environmental levels on the green side as well. ;)

Hope this helps!! :D

As far as I can tell, High Tech and Agricultural industries produce no pollution- Dirty produces a lot and Manufacturing produces a moderate amount. It is very possible to build a city with no pollution from industry at all.

I believe Agriculture produces a little pollution.

Agriculture creates quite a lot of water pollution, I suppose that it is a simulation of the herbicides and pesticides used in modern farming.

First, it takes a while for your Sims to get educated. Second, they need more than elementary and high schools, specifically for your older Sims. You need the University, libraries (very important!), and museums. You should also take the awards in these last two categories when they're offered.

    Yeah I remembered it creates water pollution and I came back to say so. But it was already mentioned, so huzzah!

    It really doesn't cost that much to have facilities like clinics and schools as long as you reduce the funding so that the capacity is just a bit about demand. So if it says there are 400 people in an elementary school the capacity should be 450. Otherwise it's just a waste of money.

    And yes, it takes a while to see the benefits. Think about it; if you build a hospital it doesn't immediately mean everyone in that city is cured. In real life not having access to hospitals often means you get a disease that makes you unhealthy for a very long time or even the rest of your life. And it takes 12 years to go through school.
