Which games were the greenest?

Some people are still calling the 2010 games were the greenest yet.  But without any analysis to support the claim.

So how does it compare to previous games? 

At the 1956 Games in Cortina d'Ampezzo all the venues except one were in walking distance of each other.  I am not sure how the 2010 games with their highway expansions projects and fleet of thousands of SUVs could be considered "greener" than that.   Even the precious gams in Turin made and kept a promise to not expand road infrastructure for the games yet.
