An EF5 tornado destroyed the town of Greensburg, Kansas. 95% of the buildings were destroyed. They rebuilt and are now greenest little town in America https://vimeo.com/118194538

Great video. Intro may be a little long & slow & lose some eyeballs but once the talking starts it's interesting and compelling.

Driving a race car might seem like an unusual occupation for an environmental activist, but for Leilani Munter it's all intertwined and makes perfect sense.

In case you are wondering where these AI stories are coming from - straying from my clean energy, environmental, vegan themes... before I started driving race cars, I was a biology graduate from UCSD and the scientist in me has been awakened/alarmed learning about AI. 
Psychopathic machines? Lethal AI? These are the concepts we should be thinking about when we talk about the benefits of self-improving software. An excerpt from James Barrat’s ‘Our Final Invention’.

Serge - when did you do AI work? I also worked on AI Expert systems about a decade ago and the advances (particularly in massively parallel neuronets) since then are staggering... The article does not seem as improbable to me as it would have five years ago....

Never underestimate a vegan hippie chick with a race car.
Introduction
Leilani Münter is a race car driver and environmental activist who was named the #1 Eco Athlete in the World by Discovery's Planet Green. She is a recipient of ELLE Magazine's 2012 Genius Award. Leilani holds a bachelors degree in Biology specializing in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution from the University of California San Diego. Since 2007, Leilani has adopted an acre of rainforest for every race she runs and is a long time vegetarian and eco activist. She is politically active in the legislative fight for the environment, speaking on Capitol Hill to Congress on behalf of clean energy legislation.

Leilani races in the ARCA Series, a development league of NASCAR. She is the fourth woman in history to race in the Indy Pro Series, the development league of IndyCar. She set the record for the highest finish for a female driver in the history of the Texas Motor Speedway when she finished fourth in 2006. Her racing accomplishments have landed her on the pages of USA Today, Italian Vogue, Esquire, ESPN and Sports Illustrated named her one of the top ten female race car drivers in the world.

With family ties in the music community – her brother-in-law is Grateful Dead guitarist and singer Bob Weir - Leilani's motto is "Never underestimate a vegan hippie chick with a race car." She documents her efforts to go green on The Huffington Post and her site CarbonFreeGirl.com. Leilani is left handed. She is small, but tough.
