The Greenbird project, a project initiated to attempt to break the land speed record for a wind powered vehicle, has come to an end. Uncharacteristic rainfall in the Australian desert has thwarted the attempt. This uncharacteristic rainfall could well be as a result of the damage being caused by the continual removal of our rainforests and the increasing levels of carbon we pump into the atmosphere.
