    MREA 2014, Leilani Munter in Custer, Wisconsin

    Keynotes | The Midwest Renewable Energy Association
    Leilani Münter is a biology graduate who eventually became the unusual combination of a race car driver and environmental activist. Since 2006, Leilani has been using her unique voice in the racing world to fight for environmental issues.
    In 2007, she became the first carbon neutral race car driver when she made the commitment to adopt an acre of rainforest for every race she runs to offset the carbon footprint of her race car.
    Leilani became the first Ambassador of the National Wildlife Federation in 2008, and made several trips to Capitol Hill to speak with members of Congress on behalf of clean energy legislation alongside climate change scientists. She has spoken on the steps of Capitol Hill alongside Senators Barbara Boxer and John Kerry. After meeting with her, Senator Elizabeth Dole called Leilani "a woman on a mission."
    In 2010, Leilani was one of the first activists to visit the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, eventually making two trips to areas of Louisiana devastated by the oil spill and appearing on a live interview with MSNBC.
    With years of dedication to environmental issues, she has become a recognized leader in the environmental community. Discovery's Planet Green named her the #1 eco athlete in the world, GlamourMagazine called her "An Eco Hero," ELLE Magazine awarded her their Genius Award, and Sports Illustrated named her one of the top ten female race car drivers in the world.

    Had to cancel my trip their this weekend :( After working out the details, my 60kW pack just would not have done the round trip without a good number of hours sitting at the Nissan Dealer charging :(

    She is supposed to be in Milwaukee this week. So I will try for then.
