This page has been updated with correct answers to the first quiz, which is now over.

The hunt for the TheGreenGrok follower most in the know is on — and it could mean a brand spanking new iPad for one lucky reader.

Today we’re launching the first quiz in a three-part quiz contest.

To be entered into the drawing to win an iPad, you must take all three quizzes. You will have one week to complete each quiz; answers will be posted after the window for taking the quiz closes. A grand-prize winner will be drawn from the pool of contestants who answer the most questions correctly. (See complete contest rules.)

Oh, and here’s a hint: all answers can be found here on the blog. In fact, our posts are the final determinant of correct answers. Good luck.


Answers to the First of Three Quizzes


1. Burning coal generally produces:

2. What is the name of the climate scientist, formerly employed by the University of Virginia, who is the subject of a probe by that state’s attorney general?

4. Approximately how much oil (in barrels) was released into the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon disaster, according to official figures?

5. Which action is predicted by the International Energy Agency’s 2010 World Energy Outlook report to drop the price of oil by about $20 per barrel in 2035?


That’s all for this week’s quiz. Check this page next week for the answers, and hurry back for more reading … and the remaining quizzes.
