Leilani Munter, a race car driver, environmental activist and self-described “eco-athlete” was featured on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Earth Day website in a video promoting bike riding, using public transportation and veganism.

“I’m aware of the carbon footprint of my race car and my lifestyle,” Munter said in the video. “For every race I’m in, I adopt an acre of rainforest to offset my effect on the environment.” …

In an effort to be true to the cause, she should kill herself.

To quote an episode of Frasier where Nile's bird comments on his dinner guests, "Cute, but stupid".

She’s not a total stiff, has run some ARCA and Indy lights, she’s somewhere between Milka Duno and Simona deSilvestro on the talent scale.

Her main claim to fame is that her sister is married to a Grateful Dead guy.

I think I still have some 100W incandescents around the place. I think those older 300W “work” bulbs are still around too . . .

“For every race I’m in, I adopt an acre of rainforest to offset my effect on the environment.”

In other words, she does absolutely NOTHING.

The rainforest is just doing its thing anyway.

What's this "adopting" crap?

Nodding in agreement with a bunch of trees?

I rode my bike today, but NOT because it was “Erf” day. I also ate some homemade (by me) ham with my dinner. Whoops! So much for veganism.

Probably the same type of scam as "buying" an acre of land on the moon. :-)

You all remember Ira Einhorn is the co-founder of Earth Day?

He was the one that offed is girl-friend and kept her body in a trunk for a year and fled to France. He was eventually extradited back to the U.S. and now serving a life term for murder.

Self-proclaimed co-founder, who seems to really have had nothing to do with it. The big names who actually made it more or less official were Gaylord Nelson (D-WI, who picked the hundredth anniversary of Lenin’s birth as the first Earth Day) and U Thant (third UN secretary general) who along with UNESCO (yeah, them) wanted it to be observed on or near the northern hemisphere’s spring equinox.

As for Einhorn himself, he seems troubled by demons. Look at his eyes in this set of photos . . .

It’s probably something like what these folks do:

http://adopt.nature.org/faq.html

Basically, people donate, they use the donation money to buy plots of land in areas considered vulnerable - which probably means those that might get developed (deforested, etc.), and they keep ownership of that land to prevent such development.

As a biologist, I’m not sure if that’s quite enough to offset the carbon emissions of a race car, in that you’re right - the trees were already there, she’s just paying so they stay there.

If you adopt an acre of rainforest, can you claim it as a dependent on your 1040?

Since we got eight inches of snow on Earth Day, I invite this young lady to drive past the burning tires in my driveway, in the hopes they’ll bring on some desperately needed ‘global warming’.
