We are the Greenious, and we would like to introduce green energy to all of you through digital media we have made. The reason we created this website solely is because of our concern for the environment. We are all aware that young people are deciding the future generations of the world. Moreover, many issues began to emerge today, like global warming, and we, as a part of the younger generation, are concerned about the environmental problems. Therefore, through ThinkQuest that has been spreading around the world, we would like to introduce green energy as an alternative energy which is more eco-friendly, especially to the younger generation, and the laity. Thus, we can tolerate global warming slowly, though not radically.
If we go deep into the previous days, everything actually originates from the ThinkQuest International Competition 2012 which brought us from various schools in Jakarta. We came from three high schools in Jakarta, namely 42 Senior High School, 48 Senior High School, and Marsudirini Senior High School. Initially, the three of us have already known each other. Then, two other members who have the same sense of concern for the environment joined with us. With different capabilities, we are able to collaborate to finish this digital media so that we, the determinants of future generations, can go forward together to build a better environment in the future.

What about our vision and mission?
We would like to introduce green energy to the world, particularly to students and lay people. Through this website, we want to realize our concerns and take action to make the world better. Perhaps, we can not do much, but we want to start with small things we can do. We would like to participate in changing the world so that we, our children, and our descendants will survive eventually.
Shortly, these are our vision and mission.
That is a few explanation about us. We, the Greenious, hoping to be able to immediately meet and talk with you. We also hope that our website can be an example and benefit to you all.
Thatís all from us. Thank you.
I have no doubt that we will be successful in harnessing the sun's energy. If sunbeams were weapons of war, we would have had solar energy centuries ago.
– Sir George Porter, quoted in The Observer, 26 August 1973
The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.

I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?
– Robert Redford, Yosemite National Park dedication, 1985
Your grandchildren will likely find it incredible - or even sinful - that you burned up a gallon of gasoline to fetch a pack of cigarettes!

When we heal the earth, we heal ourselves.

How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and of oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made beauty, the mineral-like quality of life?
– Charles A. Lindbergh, Reader's Digest, November 1939
For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.
– Richard P. Feynman
Living in the midst of abundance we have the greatest difficulty in seeing that the supply of natural wealth is limited and that the constant increase of population is destined to reduce the American standard of living unless we deal more sanely with our resources.
