Ready to put your Greenpeace knowledge to the test? Remember, please phrase your answer in the form of a question.
Jeopardy! was a fixture in my home growing up. Our family would watch together — my dad and I would shout out the answers (in the form of a question, of course) in friendly competition.
One of the things I loved about Jeopardy! was learning about places and people I hadn’t heard of yet. It gave me a window into a vast world that I had yet to experience. To be fair, I also like winning — but the real thrill was that dedicated family connection. I have such fond memories, as do many others, I suspect.
Alex Trebek’s pancreatic cancer announcement came as a shock, but he was able to continue hosting Jeopardy! for almost two more years. In Trebek’s incredible 36 year tenure, Greenpeace was the subject of a Jeopardy! clue or question over 25 times, including some Daily Doubles and a Final Jeopardy! clue.
Below are 10 clues and a Final Jeopardy clue — how well do you know Greenpeace history?
