1. Which type of electric bulb uses the least energy? Correct answer is b.

LED bulbs use up to 60 – 80% less energy

2. Which uses up less water. Correct answer is a.

Washing by hand can use up to 50% more water.

3. Which type of shopping bags ae more environmentally friendly? Correct answer is c.

Paper bags use a lot of energy to produce; plastic bags are difficult to dispose of. Remember to take your own reusable shopping bags and choose unbagged fruit and vegetables whenever possible

4. Approximately how much energy is produced globally from renewable sources? Correct answer is a.

However the UK currently produces approximately 20% of its energy from renewable sources and this is set to rise to 30% under current EU regulations by 2020.

5. At what time of day does air travel have the least damaging effect on the environment? Correct answer is b.

The scientific evidence is not definitive but suggests that contrails (condensation trails) from aircraft flying in daylight reflect back sunlight and also absorb radiated heat from the earth.  When no planes flew for three days in the USA after 9/11, daytime temperatures increased.

6. Which country consumes the most energy in the world per head of population? Correct answer is b.

The USA has only 4.5% of the world’s population yet consumes 20% of its energy.

7. Which country produces the most energy in the world? Correct answer is c.

China has more than 4 times the population of the USA.Approximately 18% of its energy is from renewable sources compared with 12.7 % of the USA’s

More than 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are discarded each year.  The filter tips contain 1000s of plastic micro particles which can harm marine life.

9. Which of the following will save the most energy? Correct answer is b.

Not using a car saves approximately 40 kilowatt hours per day. Not flying saves about 30 kilowatt hours per day. Solar panels save about 5 kilowatt hours per day. Eating locally produced vegan food in season saves about 20 kilowatt hours a day. The Union of Concerned Scientists in the USA lists meat-eating as the second-biggest environmental hazard facing the Earth. (Number one is fossil-fuel vehicles.) Globally, animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all the world’s transportation systems combined.Try to eat less meat – perhaps have one or two meat free days a week.
