1.  Household hazardous wastes are wastes (wow, descriptive) that contain toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients (for example, a battery).
2. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I've never really gone over this when studying but if I recall correctly, overhunting?

1) Door to Hell (I had to look this up...) 
2) A natural gas field collapsed, forming a giant hole. Scientists lit it on fire, so methane gas wouldn't spread. (I had to look this up too...)
3) Biomass.. I think.  :D

For #3, I've been trying to find the answer to it online, and most sources say hydroelectric is the most commonly used worldwide, and biomass is the most commonly used in the U.S. (?) but biomass is fine ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

your turn!
