Although he hales from the reddest district of the reddest state in the United States of America, Bob Inglis tells a story of how he came to appreciate the threat of climate change and how he believes the solution lies in the bedrock principals of conservatism.
Bob Inglis is the Executive Director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative based at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. Inglis founded and launched the national, grassroots organization in July 2012. E&EI is guided by the conservative principles of free enterprise and economic growth, limited government, liberty, accountability and reasonable risk avoidance to solve our nation’s energy and climate challenges.
Inglis represented South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union counties) for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives (1993-98 and 2005-10). He was first elected to Congress in 1992 after having never run for public office.
