For dinner, you've decided to have a cookout. You've gotten out all the food, now it's time to light the grill. You:
1. Drench the charcoal with lighter fluid.
(0 points) Besides being potentially dangerous, lighter fluid contains chemicals that can be baked by the sun to form ground-level ozone. Think about using alternatives to lighter fluid when you cook out.
2.Use a chimney or an electric starter to light the grill.
(1 point) Chimneys and electric starters are a good alternative to using lighter fluid. They work just as well, and they don't add to the ground-level ozone problem. Good job!
Add up your points. How did you do?.
