Boost Your Environmental IQ Online

Washington, D.C., February 7, 2003—The Competitive Enterprise Institute is launching a new online feature, the "e-class" quiz, this week. The quiz, developed by CEI’s Environmental Studies Department, is a useful tool that students, researchers, and others can use to test their knowledge of current environmental issues.

The environmental e-class includes questions on a wide range of timely environmental issues, including climate change, endangered species, and pesticides. For those interested in further research, each answer includes recommended readings, footnotes, and contact information for experts in the field.

"The e-class is a quick, concise way to gauge your knowledge of particular policy issues," said Director of Risk and Environmental Policy Angela Logomasini. "The quiz answers and documentation help clear up misconceptions about some important issues and explain the direction of current trends."

For more information on the topics covered in the e-class, see the issue area section of CEI’s website, where visitors can find studies, speeches, articles, transcripts, and press releases on the key environmental issues facing the world today.
