So where should you live?  I seem to be geared for Scandinavian countries.  Too bad they are so cold!

Climate should certainly be a factor in the ratings. Otherwise Scandinavia is always going to come out on top (as it did for me, too). I could probably handle the Danish (ranked #5) or Dutch (#7) climate, and there are parts of Canada (#3) that aren't too bad, but the only warm place in my list is Australia (#6) and Caribbean countries aren't even considered.

Surprisingly got Australia as my top choice, followed by 3/4 of Scandinavia.

Classic misconception. We have something between 1 and 3 months of snow per year, and even then it tends to be a mild cold most of the time. Our usual weather is simply wet and mild. We've had a long heat wave this summer, with temperatures that have been higher than in areas such as the Mediterranean.

Scandinavia notices the effects of the climate change easily though. We're having more and more extreme weather. When it's cold, it's really cold. When it's hot, it's really hot. The weather around here isn't at all the same as it was 20 years ago.

A few days ago we had 31 degrees celcius in Denmark, or 87.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

Well it's summer.  That's a pretty typical summer temperature in most parts of the States. 

Being so close to the northern water it seems you guys have much more temperate weather than places like the continental US midwest. I grew up in North Dakota, which looks to be both hotter and colder than Denmark from the data I can find.

A map I saw a few days ago revealed that Norway has had some of the warmest weather in the world this summer. That's crazy. I actually traveled to Majorca on holiday, and found it to be less hot (except for the direct heat from the sun) than back home.

I live in South Burlington.  I went to college here and haven't really felt the desire to leave.
