We have a winner. And soon he’ll have an iPad, courtesy of TheGreenGrok.

… in. We’ve gone through all the quiz results and tabulated the number of correct responses and would like to extend hearty congratulations to the winner of our “How Much Green Do You Grok?” quiz contest!

A little more than a month after we launched our first-ever environmental quiz, in search of our reader who best “groks” environmental issues covered on TheGreenGrok, we have found our winner. Scott Weaver of Ohio was the only one of the hundreds who participated to get all 15 questions correct (see here, here and here).

Meet Our Winner

Turns out he is no stranger to the Nicholas School. But before getting to that, the first reaction of the soon-to-be proud owner of a brand new iPad?

“Awesome!” he wrote in an e-mail message to us, wherein he revealed he was none other than a graduate of Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment (MEM, 2005).

He went on to tell us a little about his position as an analyst at American Electric Power, “one of the nation’s largest electric utilities,” and his reading habits.

Here’s Scott in his own words (copyedited for style and consistency) …

On his job: “I focus on analyzing a variety of environmental and energy policy issues (e.g., climate change, renewable energy, air emissions) to support generation planning efforts and help inform public policy.”

On the blog: “As a frequent reader of TheGreenGrok, I find it provides very timely and valuable information on some of the daunting environmental issues facing this generation and offers me a broader perspective on both my job responsibilities and my personal responsibilities. I would like to thank Dean Chameides and his staff for using this blog to raise visibility of the issues.”

And we’d like to thank you, Scott, for being such an astute reader and perspicacious student of the environment. Your iPad will be in the mail soon.
