Geography mocks and relevent material?

Yesterday I had two geography mock tests in school - one mock was about "Superpowers", the other was about "Energy Security".

I remember I needed to mention about Nuclear Power as an alternative method of energy rather than fossil fuels, which caused me to namedrop the Chernobyl event in Ukraine.

This will look very familiar if you've ever played
Call of Duty 4...

The BBC has just published an article about the Chernobyl event on development of birds and brain mass which was an interesting read, i'd suggest you read it if you're interested.

Very interesting article that you linked to. It should be noted that the scientists can't explain what specifically is causing the brain shrinkage, just that they observed the smaller brains in the birds.
