This event will take place in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library auditorium on UVA Central Grounds.

In 2012, former Congressman Bob Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (now known as RepublicEN) at George Mason University to promote free-market solutions to climate change. In this Great Issues event, Congressman Inglis will reflect on his time in government and his efforts to raise awareness among conservatives about the challenges posed by, and potential solutions to, climate change. In September, Congressman Inglis was named to Politico’s list of the “Politico 50,” a “guide to the thinkers, doers and visionaries transforming American politics in 2016.” In 2015, the John F. Kennedy Museum and Library awarded him the Profile in Courage Award for his work on climate change.

Congressman Inglis represented South Carolina’s 4th congressional district from 1993-1998, and again from 2005-2011. He 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. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law.
