Are You Smarter Than Al Gore?
Environmentalism is all the rage, but which of our green dispositions really work? The Christian Science Monitor invites you to match environmental wits with Al Gore.
Everyone has been conditioned to flick off lights when they leave a room—or, if they forget, to tromp dutifully back to turn them off. Many such energy-saving actions have become routines that make us feel very green, very much the global good citizens helping to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. We don't really know how Al Gore would do on this quiz. But if you take it and ace it, you might feel a little competitive with the man who won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to counter climate change by reconsidering the energy choices behind the problem.
