Questions for TransportiCA's September Book Club Contest - "Our Renewable Future"


This contest has now ended; thank you for your participation, and feel free to visit our October 2016 book club selection.

With every month's Book Club selection, TransportiCA provides three questions based-upon the reading.  If you send us all three correct responses by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win a copy of the book, personally signed by the author.

For the September Book Club selection, TransportiCA has chosen Our Renewable Future: Laying the Path for One Hundred Percent Clean Energy, by bestselling authors and Post-Carbon Institute Fellows, Richard Heinberg and David Fridley.

The contest questions for this month's selection are:
1. True or False: "All fossil fuel producers face the problem of declining resource quality, but the problem is most apparent in the petroleum sector."
2. "The first [laws of thermodynamics], known as the __________ law, states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred or transformed."
3. Which transportation industry cannot be electrified, and thus, alternative energy sources must be biofuels?

To send-in your responses, submit via TransportiCA's "Comment Form" on the front-page (bottom left), sending your name, email address and answers.  The deadline for submission is Friday, 30 September 2016 at 23:59.

Thank you for your interest in the Book Club, and best of luck with the contest!
