Executive Director of RepublicEn
“CCL teams with enthusiasm and excitement in the search for solutions on climate change. Its positive spirit is its DNA. I’m grateful for the thousands who are devoted to the cause and open to free enterprise answers to climate change.”
Bob Inglis is the Executive Director of the Energy and Enterprise Initiative based at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.
Mr. Inglis founded and launched the national, grassroots organization on July 10, 2012. Under his leadership, E&EI advocates conservative alternatives to big-government mandates and fickle tax incentives. E&EI maintains that the accountability of a “true cost” comparison between competing fuels will drive innovation and economic growth. As an optimistic conservative, Mr. Inglis launched E&EI to apply a “can-do” American spirit to the challenges at hand.
Before starting E&EI, Mr. Inglis represented South Carolina’s Fourth Congressional District (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union counties) for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Inglis was first elected to Congress in 1992, having never run for public office. He spent six years in the U.S. House (1993-98) and kept a campaign commitment to serve just three terms. In 1998, he unsuccessfully challenged Democratic U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings.
