I am very interested in following this ThinkQuest competition because through this competition, I can learn many things. I can learn many different things, ranging from science, technology, creativity, and so forth.
In our group, my role as author of the article. After more discussion topics deepen our website, I have a dream to change the world in the future. I have a dream to minimize the impact of global warming through green energy-based fuels. Perfect combustion of biofuels produces carbon dioxide emissions are less than that of fossil fuels. Thus, the impact of global warming can be minimized.
Now, we know that green energy is very useful. I can only hope, the world community can participate in developing green energy as an alternative so that we will not run out of fuel.
