Share Energy and the Election

Event Details

High gasoline prices, hydraulic fracturing and the Keystone XL Pipeline have thrust energy into the headlines. How will that play this election cycle? Domestic oil drilling is up, coal use is down, and renewable energy accounts for most newly installed electricity generation. But there is a deep divide about whether America’s future should be powered with energy from below ground or above it. Are Democrats sanctimonious and Republicans delusional about climate change? 
South Carolina Congressman Bob Inglis lost a 2010 primary election after saying his party needs to stop denying mainstream climate science. What lessons can be draw from that and what does it augur for bipartisan action on carbon pollution? 
Join us for a broad conversation about the political and energy choices facing the country.
Bob Inglis, Executive Director, Energy and Enterprise Initiative, George Mason University; former South Carolina Congressman 
Bill Reilly, Former Administrator, US EPA; Senior Advisor, TPG Capital 
Tom Steyer, Managing Partner, Farallon Capital
