sayai Group Title

true or false 1)Since the U.S imports about 4 billion barrels of crude every year, at best, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge could provide us with nearly 100 years worth of oil. 2)Coal has no advantage over other energy sources except that it is very cheap. 3)Nuclear fission can be described as a chain reaction. 4)The way that nuclear waste is categorized is different in various countries. 5)As a result of hydroelectric power, people and important landmarks have been displaced. 6)Ocean waves are powerful and constant, two attributes that make wave power efficient enough to be used to generate electricity.

    For that first one, I am debating. The ANWR is a rather controversial topic right now. While some say that the oil could last for a long time, others believe it will only last for a few decades. What were you taught in your course?

    @tafkas77 i think it true because i read that passage they give me in the course The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) is more than 19 million acres of wildlife refuge in Alaska. It is believed to contain a large supply of crude oil, so the prospect of drilling for oil there is a highly debated topic. The US Geological Survey estimates that there are between 5.7 and 16 billion barrels of oil to be had from the ANWR, but warns that there is considerable uncertainty about the exact amount and quality of the crude oil that could be extracted there. Proponents of drilling in the ANWR point out that it would create jobs and reduce our dependence on oil imports. They say America needs to tap its natural resources for the good of its people and to keep oil prices low. Opponents say that it would damage a protected national wildlife area and would not produce that much oil anyway. (Remember that the US imports about 4 billion barrels of oil every year—so if the ANWR has at most 16 billion gallons of recoverable crude oil, it would only produce enough to last us about 4 years.)

    Well, what about these arguments from your book? They lead me to believe that the answer is false: ☼ (Remember that the US imports about 4 billion barrels of oil every year—so if the ANWR has at most 16 billion gallons of recoverable crude oil, it would only produce enough to last us about 4 years.) ☼ The US Geological Survey estimates that there are between 5.7 and 16 billion barrels of oil to be had from the ANWR, but warns that there is considerable uncertainty about the exact amount and quality of the crude oil that could be extracted there. Do you see what I mean?

    Hmmm... I'd probably go with false here. Do you remember what I said last time about words like "ONLY" or "EXCEPT"?

    Great. Okay, for this next question I'm going to ask you to do something a little different, all right? I need you to copy and paste your question into a search engine like google or bing? Search your question, but don't open any of the links. It should give you a preview sentence or two underneath. Read the first 5 previews or so, and tell me what you think.

    I disagree with 5 ONLY. 'The United States currently has over 2,000 hydroelectric power plants which ... Pumped-storage schemes currently provide the most commercially important ..... 40-80 million people worldwide had been physically displaced as a direct result of hydroelectric power ..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroelectricity Do you see what I mean?

    Read all of what? I included what I wanted you to read. You don't actually have to check that site out; I was just citing my sources. But anyway... you're welcome. By the way, I just told you that #4 and #6 were correct. I told you that #5 is the ONLY one you needed to review. Good luck. :)
