The earth is full of so much gloom,
causing the feeling of impending doom.
Weakening the knees with strength that caves,
because of the floods, quakes, and massive waves.
Violent storms and tornadoes fierce,
and every sense of peace these terrors pierce.
Knowing full well it is but a taste,
a warning that there's no time to waste.
For I know its brewing a great and mighty force,
because to cleanse itself is just natures course.
And things look bleak and the future grim,
and afraid I am for chances seem slim.

Following the recent turmoil in Formula 1 arising from the high costs of running competitive motor racing teams, and doubts in sponsors’ minds over the commercial value of their involvement, the viability of motor racing is being critically questioned.
It is the first Formula 3 racing car designed and made from sustainable and renewable materials, putting the world first by effectively managing the planet's resources. Its body is made of potatoes, the steering wheel is carrots, and the fuel is derived from chocolate.
They've used recycled materials in combination with fibers and extracts of fruits, vegetables and plants to create composites, materials and lubricants along the same vein as carbon fiber, plastics, and oil. It's based on the standard Lola chassis and despite the eco-friendliness, the car will still hit 145 MPH and corner like the real deal.

Sustainable development has been defined as balancing the fulfillment of human needs with the protection of the natural environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but in the indefinite future. The term was used by the Brundtland Commission which coined what has become the most often-quoted definition of sustainable development as development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
