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

When: Sunday, January 28 2018 @ 11:00 AM - - 12:15PM
Where: Humanist House
1180 Coleman Ave.
San Jose, CA 95110
Description:

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.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
