With questions about greenhouse gasses, the Kyoto protocol, and the origin of the planet, the Grist quiz is a tough one. How will you do?

"Advice guru Umbra Fisk and her soon-to-be-ex-editor are having a dispute over the climate-change literacy of Umbra's faithful readers. To settle it, they decided to mud wrestle. That didn't work out so well, so now, just in time for Earth Day, Umbra's springing a pop quiz on matters climate changey."
