“A Free Enterprise Solution to Climate Change”
Location: Owens Auditorium in the Bradshaw Performing Arts Center at Sandhills Community College
Former Republican Congressman Bob Inglis is the Executive Director of republicEn.org, a growing group of conservatives concerned about climate change.
Inglis served in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Greenville-Spartanburg, S.C., from 1993 to 1999 and 2005 to 2011. After leaving Congress, Inglis founded republicEn.org at George Mason University to promote responsible 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,” in the Showtime series “Years of Living Dangerously,” and has given TED Talks on political courage and on his metamorphosis on climate change. A graduate of Duke University and the University of Virginia School of Law, Inglis has been a Resident Fellow at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics, a Visiting Energy Fellow at Duke Nicholas School of the Environment, and a Resident Fellow at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.
