Call for Nominations
After seeing An Inconvenient Truth, Leilani was so moved by the film’s message that she posted to her blog that she had seen the movie. That note got posted on a NASCAR forum and created a storm of letters and discussion. Though most comments were negative, she realized she had managed to get the racing sector talking about climate change. With that, she was on her way.
Like Leilani, are you, or someone you know, working in a particularly polluting industry, yet are determined to do something to offset or lessen your impact on the environment?
Leilani’s desire to spread the word has always been strong:
“I felt a responsibility to do something about the impact I have on the environment because of my racing career. If I can get one person to think twice about their impact on the earth and start recycling and conserving energy, then it’s working.”
