Discussing Controversial Topics in a Polarized Political Climate
From TED.com: Former Republican member of the U.S. Congress Bob Inglis shares an optimistic message about how conservatives can lead on climate change and other pressing problems -- and how free enterprise (and working together across ideologies) hold the solutions. "The United States was not built by those who waited and wished to look behind them," Inglis says. "Lead now ... Tell the American people that we still have moon shots in us."
Former congressman Bob Inglis became passionate about climate change while in Congress. He tells NPR's Scott Simon there's a way to make fixing climate change palatable to his party: make it about the power of free enterprise. December 5, 2015.
