    Here's a fun quiz that will get you thinking about the importance of wood and biomass fuel in the world. Try it out, you will learn some interesting facts. I got 2 wrong, but will let you all take the quiz before telling which ones.

    There are several informative articles in this series on the energy challenges civilization faces. Worth reading on a chilly night.

    If it would have been a fill in the blank type of test, I would have been lucky to get two correct. ;-)

    I only got 67%, 8 right, 4 wrong. I'm absolutely shattered. If it wasn't raining outside, I'd throw myself in front of the train. At the very least, I'm going to sell my stove and wood and buy another oil tank and turn the thermostat up to 85 degrees and sit in the dark in my underwear.
    I'm a complete failure........"sniff"

    Hahahaha!! Too funny!
    You are joking right???
    I also got 4 wrong, guessed all of them aside from the one that mentioned New England. Only know that from all of the posters here, so maybe I'm a cup half full guy by thinking at the very least I learned 1 more thing from hearth.com.

    According to this test, I know nothing about wood/biomass heating. And I'm ok with that.

    Cheers

    Not so hot. See if a second try helps bring the answers to light.

    I hate tests.
    I wasn't around in 1885 (although some think I might have been).

    75% African wood gatherers are alot stronger than I thought. And a million tons of wood waste generates alot of electricity.

    It is touch and go at 6. If two really is the average, people are talking smack about their consumption, people are running their furnaces more than they admit or the sample is heavily biased towards southern states.
