Rep Bob Inglis shares his journey from climate disputer to climate change activist. Following a science committee trip to Australia, he had a spiritual awakening moving him to consciously loving God and loving people and leaving the world a better place for future generations. Upon his return, he introduced the Raise Wages Cut Carbon Act of 2009. Unfortunately, the act was defeated but his desire to continue the conversation was not.
Bob provides insight into how both sides of the aisle can come together to create bipartisan action that is durable. He notes that most people will not accept a problem unless they think it has a solution. As such, he believes it is important to identify solutions that are directly connected to people’s values.
