### What percentage of the world's power supply comes from combined geothermal, wind, solar, and biomass?

• A.

1%

• B.

8%

• C.

12%

• D.

4%

A. 1%
Explanation
Combined geothermal, wind, solar, and biomass sources contribute to only 1% of the world's power supply. This suggests that the majority of the world's power comes from other sources such as fossil fuels or nuclear energy. The low percentage indicates that there is still a long way to go in terms of transitioning to renewable energy sources and reducing reliance on non-renewable ones.

### What percentage of the world's power supply comes from fossil fuels which includes coal, oil and natural  gas?

• A.

55%

• B.

87%

• C.

96%

• D.

44%

B. 87%
Explanation
The correct answer is 87%. This means that 87% of the world's power supply comes from fossil fuels, including coal, oil, and natural gas. Fossil fuels have been the primary source of energy for many years due to their abundance and affordability. However, this heavy reliance on fossil fuels has significant environmental consequences, such as greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. It emphasizes the need for transitioning to cleaner and renewable energy sources to reduce the negative impact on the planet.

### How much energy is required by the average person in Bangladesh, measured in kg of oil equivalent?

• A.

26 kg of oil equivalent a year

• B.

398 kg of oil equivalent a year

• C.

161 kg of oil equivalent a year

• D.

444 kg of oil equivalent a year

C. 161 kg of oil equivalent a year
Explanation
The average person in Bangladesh requires 161 kg of oil equivalent a year in terms of energy. This means that the energy consumption of the average person in Bangladesh is equivalent to the energy produced by burning 161 kg of oil in a year.

### What percentage of the NWT's electricity generation comes from solar and wind combined?

• A.

3.6%

• B.

1.2%

• C.

0.012%

• D.

0.4%

C. 0.012%
Explanation
The correct answer is 0.012%. This means that only a very small percentage of the NWT's electricity generation comes from solar and wind combined. This suggests that solar and wind energy are not major sources of electricity in the NWT, and that other forms of energy generation are more dominant in the region.

### What percentage of the NWT's electricity generation comes from fossil fuels?

• A.

29%

• B.

89%

• C.

63%

• D.

48%

C. 63%
Explanation
The correct answer is 63%. This means that approximately 63% of the NWT's electricity generation is derived from fossil fuels.

### What is the most common fuel used for heating homes in the NWT?

• A.

Wood

• B.

Dogs

• C.

Propane

• D.

Oil

D. Oil
Explanation
Oil is the most common fuel used for heating homes in the NWT. This is because oil is readily available and provides efficient heating. It is also a reliable source of fuel, especially in colder climates like the NWT. Additionally, oil heating systems are widely used and easily accessible for homeowners in the region.

### These two appliances should only be run when full?

• A.

Oven and microwave

• B.

Fridge and freezer

• C.

Dishwasher and washing machine

• D.

Toaster and blender

C. Dishwasher and washing machine
Explanation
The dishwasher and washing machine should only be run when full in order to maximize energy and water efficiency. Running these appliances with a full load ensures that the resources used (such as water, electricity, and detergent) are fully utilized, reducing waste. Additionally, running these appliances with a full load also helps to prolong their lifespan by reducing the number of cycles and minimizing wear and tear.

### Other than Antarctica, this continent uses the least amount of energy?

Australia
Explanation
Australia is the correct answer because it is known for having a relatively low energy consumption compared to other continents. This can be attributed to various factors such as its smaller population size compared to other continents, its vast land area with low population density, and its abundant natural resources that contribute to a significant portion of its energy production. Additionally, Australia has been actively investing in renewable energy sources, further reducing its reliance on traditional energy consumption.

### This type of light bulb uses 1/4 less energy than an incandescent bulb?

• A.

LED

• B.

Halogen

• C.

Compact fluorescent

• D.

Low-pressure sodium

C. Compact fluorescent
Explanation
Compact fluorescent bulbs use 1/4 less energy than incandescent bulbs. This is because compact fluorescent bulbs are more energy-efficient and produce less heat compared to incandescent bulbs. They use a different technology called fluorescence, where electricity excites mercury vapor inside the bulb, producing ultraviolet light that then interacts with a phosphor coating to produce visible light. This process requires less energy to generate the same amount of light as an incandescent bulb, making compact fluorescent bulbs a more energy-efficient option.
