Former lawmaker Bob Inglis to discuss climate change

Tue, 04/16/2013

LAWRENCE — Former Congressman Bob Inglis, executive director of the Energy & Enterprise Initiative (E&EI), will discuss climate change, environmental policy and energy at the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas for the event “The Environment & Energy: The Role of Free Enterprise and the Government” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23. It is free and open to the public.

“Bob Inglis lost his seat in Congress in part for believing in climate change and advocating for environmental and energy action based on the principles of limited government and free enterprise,” Dole Institute Director Bill Lacy said. “This perspective on climate change might be new to many folks but is an interesting approach to long-term, stable energy policy in America.”

Inglis was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1992, having never run for office before. He represented Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, from 1993-1998, unsuccessfully challenged U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings in 1998, and returned to Congress in 2005 and served until 2011. He served on the Foreign Affairs Committee and as ranking member of the Energy and Environment subcommittee of the House Science Committee. Both in and out of Congress, Inglis has championed free-enterprise solutions to America's energy-security and climate-change challenges.

“I'm excited for the opportunity to speak to KU students at the Dole Institute because the younger generation of our country is in tune to the environment and aware of climate change going on around them," Inglis said. "And young folks on college campuses, especially young conservatives, are great ambassadors to their parents and grandparents and are our next generation of leaders.

"They are hungry for action and our conservative solution directly involves them and free enterprise. A free-enterprise solution is better for our economy and the environment than clumsy EPA mandates, wasteful energy subsidies, or massive tax increases like cap and trade."

Inglis founded and launched the national, grass-roots organization July 10, 2012. E&EI is guided by the conservative principles of free enterprise and economic growth, limited government, liberty, accountability and reasonable risk avoidance to solve the nation’s energy and climate challenges.

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
