Can American free enterprise solve climate change? Can conservatives and libertarians lead us to action? How can citizens summon in our leaders the courage to lead on climate?

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce teams up with the Rochester Regional Group of the Sierra Club April 17 to bring former Congressman Bob Inglis to town for a discussion about climate change and the path forward to solving one of our nation's greatest challenges.
As Executive Director of republicEn.org, Inglis works to bring together Americans to lead the way on a free-enterprise solution to climate change, showcase #EcoRight ideas and momentum, call upon American greatness, and summon in lawmakers the courage to work together on this important issue.
 
Inglis said, "Policies based on bedrock conservatism could harness the power of free enterprise while being acceptable to many progressives. America could lead the world to solutions on climate change. We can get there. On climate change and many other issues we just need to ask our leaders for solutions rather than scapegoats, for light rather than heat, for courage rather than outrage."
 
Takeaways
• With a true level playing field (void of subsidies for various fuels and renewables), free enterprise can deliver the innovation to solve climate change.
• A carbon tax needs to be structured so it is 'revenue neutral' meaning you cut taxes somewhere else or you dividend the money back.
• The tax swap also has to be border adjustable so that it is    applied on imports. Then you get China and rest of the world in on the deal.
