Getting to Yes on Climate Policy: Republicans, the Media, and a New Path Forward

An Evening with Bob Inglis and Adam Davidson

 

Brought to you by Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, Aspen One, and Audi

Now that climate change is blindingly obvious, it’s time to think seriously about how to fix it. To do that, we’re going to need national policy, and that will likely require Republican buy in. Join us for an evening with former South Carolina Republican congressman Bob Inglis, who has devoted his life to solving the climate problem by jump-starting free enterprise through carbon pricing. Joining him will be award-winning journalist, Adam Davidson, who will address the challenge of getting attention for climate change in the media and why it has been so difficult in a world programmed to jump from disaster to disaster. What policies could move the needle and get them through the morass that is congress? What new approach to media might help us move forward?

Bob Inglis is the Executive Director of republicEn.org. He was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1992, representing South Carolina, from 1993-1998 and again from 2004-2010. Inglis went full-time into promoting free enterprise action on climate change and launched the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (“E&EI” – rebranded as republicEn.org) at George Mason University in 2012. Inglis received the 2015 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for his climate work.

Adam Davidson co-founded and ran NPR’s Planet Money and was economics writer for the NY Times Magazine and the New Yorker. His book, The Passion Economy: The New Rules for Thriving in the Twenty-First Century, was named a best nonfiction book and a best business book by Amazon. He has received the Peabody, Polk, and Columbia-DuPont Awards. He was a  collaborator on the film, The Big Short.
