IEPEC 2017 Keynote Speaker

From Skeptic to Realist
Bob Inglis


A former climate skeptic, Bob Inglis became a climate realist upon returning to Congress in 2005 where he served his second, three-term stint. After losing his 2010 primary, Inglis launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (“E&EI”) at George Mason University in July 2012. Now called, this group of conservative “energy optimists and climate realists” believes free enterprise can deliver innovation and clean up the air faster than clumsy government regulations and subsidies could ever imagine.

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 (episodes 3 and 4), and he spoke at TEDxJacksonville.
