Moscow, Idaho is the only western stop Inglis is making on this tour.

Former Congressman Gives Talk About Conservative Solutions to Climate
Change October
12, 2017

A former Republican congressman from South Carolina will bring his campaign
to address climate change through free-enterprise policies to Idaho next

Rep. Bob Inglis, who served six terms in the U.S. House of Representatives,
will speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, in the courtroom of the University
of Idaho’s College of Law, 711 S. Rayburn St

His free public talk is titled “Solving Climate Change with Conservative
Principles.” It will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Inglis is visiting 10 cities in 10 weeks as part of the “EnCourage” tour,
sponsored by the Energy and Enterprise Initiative at George Mason
University in Fairfax, Virginia. His visit to the UI is sponsored by the
Department of Forest, Rangeland and Fire Sciences in the College of Natural
Resources, along with the Economics Club and the Federalist Society, a law
student group.

While in Moscow, Inglis will meet with business leaders, local elected
officials, faculty members who study and teach about climate change, and
students. The following day, he will take a jet-boat trip up the Snake
River from Clarkston to see firsthand the effects of climate change on
forests, wildlife and fisheries in the Northwest.

Inglis, who describes himself as an “energy optimist and climate realist,”
was elected to the House in 1992. He served three terms before running
unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 1998. He returned to the House in 2004
and served until 2010.

For his work on climate change, Inglis received a John F. Kennedy Profile
in Courage award in 2015. He appears in the documentary “Merchants of
Doubt” and the Showtime series “Years of Living Dangerously.”

The EnCourage tour began Sept. 20 at Houghton College in Houghton, New
York, and will conclude Nov. 16 at Rice University in Houston. At each tour
location, Inglis is hoping to meet with citizens who favor pro-growth,
small government solutions to climate change. Moscow will be Inglis’ only
stop in the Northwest.
