The Science of Climate Change, and the Revenue Neutral Carbon Tax

Sudhanshu “Suds” Jain

January 28, 2018

Sudhanshu “Suds” Jain designed integrated circuits for 25 years. In 2008 he decided that the impending Climate crisis was far more important than designing the next switch chip for computer networking and he “retired” from Broadcom Corporation to become a “professional volunteer”. He coached a FIRST Lego League robotics team for 5 years, and he co-founded the high school team at Wilcox High School 3 years ago (which he still coaches). He currently serves on the City of Santa Clara planning commission.

He also serves on the board of Acterra.org. He has performed free home energy audits with Acterra’s Green at Home program. He has also installed solar panels on low income housing with Grid Alternatives. He’s active with Citizen’s Climate Lobby which advocates for a Carbon Tax with 100% revenue recycling (dividends to consumers). Since Sept. 2011, he’s been teaching a “Climate Change Science” class to middle school students at Discovery Charter School. Sudhanshu holds BSEE and MSEE degrees from MIT.

The local chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which Suds leads, meets monthly at Humanist House. They welcome new members to help them create the political will for a revenue neutral carbon pollution tax.

Uniting the Divided States of America

Michael Abramson

January 21, 2018

Michael Abramson is a physicist specializing in system modeling and simulations, and a concerned citizen leading a “Positive Agenda” group who is involved with a number of activist organizations. He will present a new taxonomy of major political groups in our society, highlighting what is common for all of them. Understanding and acknowledging this commonality is a first critical step if we want to overcome our bitter political divisions. How can we come together and build the better and stronger America for all? What our next steps could be? Who could lead the way? It may not be easy to answer these questions, but let’s start this conversation.
