Bob Inglis, bivši republikanski član američkog Kongresa, dijeli s vama optimističnu poruku o tome kako konzervativci mogu voditi u klimatskim promjenama i drugim hitnim problemima te kako je rješenje u tržišnom gospodarstvu (i zajedničkom radu unatoč idelogijama). Inglis tvrdi: "Sjedinjene države nisu izgradili oni koji su čekali i gledali u prošlost... Vodite sada... Recite američkom narodu da još uvijek možemo ciljati na Mjesec".

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Bob Inglis - Politician, energy optimist
Former United States Congressman Bob Inglis promotes free enterprise action on climate change.

Why you should listen

Bob Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (E&EI) at George Mason University in July 2012 and serves as executive director. 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."

Inglis was a Resident Fellow at Harvard University's Institute of Politics in 2011, a Visiting Energy Fellow at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment in 2012 and a Resident Fellow at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics in 2014.

Inglis was elected to the United States 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.

Inglis grew up in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, went to Duke University for college, met and married his college sweetheart, graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law and practiced commercial real estate law in Greenville, South Carolina, before and between his years in Congress. Bob and Mary Anne Inglis have five adult children and live on a small farm in northern Greenville County, South Carolina.
