Former U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC4) will share some thoughts on the reasons for the populist rejection of the science of climate change, the path back to cooperative action, and a solution that could work for conservatives and liberals alike. Might it be possible to improve the national security of the United States, create jobs and clean up the air?
Bob Inglis represented the Fourth District of South Carolina in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1993-1998. He was elected again to Congress in 2004, 2006 and 2008.
