University Lecture: Bob Inglis
“The Climate Conscience of a Conservative,” Bob Inglis, a former U.S. congressman. Inglis’ visit is co-sponsored by the Division of Biological Sciences, Georgia Initiative for Climate and Society, the School of Public and International Affairs, the College of Engineering, the Odum School of Ecology, the College of Public Health and the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.
From from 1993 to 1999 and again from 2005 to 2011 Inglis represented South Carolina’s 4th district in U.S. House of Representatives. In 2010 he lost his seat largely because of his outspoken comments about the need to take action on climate change. In 2012, Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative, a nationwide public engagement campaign promoting conservative and free-enterprise solutions to energy and climate challenges.
