How conservatives can lead on climate action under Donald Trump (Bob Inglis tour)

Tue, Feb 14, 2017 6pm Business School Lecture Theatre, Abercrombie Building, University of Sydney

RSVP Below

Free public lecture hosted at the Sydney Business School and the United States Studies Centre. Bob Inglis is touring Australia as a guest of The Australia Institute.

Chair: Robert Hill AC, who was Environment Minister under Liberal Prime Minister John Howard.

Panel: Rob Stokes, MP and NSW Minister, and Dr Scott Heron.

In February 2017, just weeks after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, former US Republican Party Congressman Bob Inglis will speak at the University of Sydney about climate action from a conservative perspective.

Mr Inglis began his career in Congress as a critic of climate action and came to accept the science after visiting Antarctica and snorkelling on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef with a scientist, Dr Scott Heron (who featured on ABC Catalyst).

Mr Inglis became a great advocate for climate action and this ‘heresy’ cost him his seat in Congress. In 2015 Mr Inglis was awarded the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for his political bravery. He is Executive Director of republicEN.org
