Former Republican Congressman, Bob Inglis (SC-4), will be speaking about market-based solutions to climate change. After a short presentation, we will have a panel discussion to talk about opportunities for addressing climate change from a free-market perspective.
Mr. Inglis was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1992, having never run for office before. He represented Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, from 1993-1998. In 2004, he was re-elected to Congress and served until losing re-election in the South Carolina Republican primary of 2010. Bob Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (“E&EI”) at George Mason University in July 2012 and serves as executive director, where he promotes free enterprise action on climate change. For his work on climate change Inglis was given the 2015 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. He appears in the film Merchants of Doubt and in the Showtime series YEARS of Living Dangerously (episodes 3 and 4), and he spoke at TEDxJacksonville (click website link above to watch).
