Bob Inglis

Former Republican U.S. Representative, South Carolina

Bob Inglis feels that he was ushered out of the Tea Party for acknowledging the reality of climate disruption. As a former U.S. Representative for South Carolina, Inglis wasn't bound by party lines, for instance voting for a cap-and-trade alternative. After his term ended, Inglis went on to found the Energy and Enterprise Initiative, a pragmatic voice for free-market energy and climate solutions. Under his leadership, the organization promotes energy optimism and climate realism with a strong community focus.

Inglis earned his B.A. from Duke University in 1981 and his J.D. from University of Virginia, Charlottesville, in 1984.

Those on the so-called eco-right say action is needed to promote clean energy and prevent climate disruption. On today’s program we hear how Republican renegades find climate solutions in conservative principles, and what we can do when climate denial isn’t just present in the halls of government, but actually, controls the levers of power.
