Former congressman Bob Inglis wrote a column last week about how climate change is driving Florida’s insurance crisis and what can be done about it.
Now Inglis, executive director of the conservative climate group republicEn.org, will be visiting the Miami area to expand upon the ideas laid out in the piece.
Inglis will be speaking Wednesday to the Rotary Club of Hialeah-Miami Springs and Thursday to the Rotary Club of Coral Gables. He will also be hosting a meet-up for conservatives who care about climate change on Thursday from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at the Panera Bread location at 10061 W. Flagler St. in Miami.
His visit comes on the heels of the latest release of the Florida Climate Resilience Survey, which found that a record number of Florida Republicans agree that human actions are causing climate change. Inglis is a Republican former congressman who lost his seat after proposing a carbon tax on emissions, then created republicEn.org as place for the “EcoRight” to discuss free market-based solutions to climate change.
