Question 1. What happens to the highly radioactive waste we produce in nuclear power stations?

It's released into the atmosphere, and we hope for the best.
It's buried underground, and we hope for the best.

Tidal power.
Geothermal energy.
Biomass.
Uranium ore.


Question 3. Which fuel doesn't produce greenhouse gases when we use it?

Petrol.
Methane.
Wood.
Plutonium.


Question 4. Why are greenhouse gases a problem?

They trap extra heat from the sun, which could cause climate change.
They lower the pH of rainwater, which could cause acid rain.
They leave sooty residue on buildings, which could cause peppered moths to evolve different patterning.
They react with ozone in the upper atmosphere, which could damage the ozone layer.


Question 5. How does acid rain damage ecosystems?

It corrodes the species in an environment, upsetting the rest of the food chain.
It makes the environment too acidic for producers, killing the rest of the food chain.
It melts the habitat, driving away all the species and destroying the food chain.
It makes the environment too acidic for predators, destabilising the rest of the food chain.
