Would you like to tell us a bit about yourself and your political interests/activities?

Since 2009, I've been dedicated to promoting three ideas, described in more detail at TimeToGetSmarter.org 1. The Human Race for a Healthy Planet which means all of humanity is in this together, our goal is a healthy, sustainable world & we need to move very quickly. I hope this becomes a rally cry. 2. Smarter Capitalism. Because it’s much fairer, socially & economically and more long term, ecologically realistic, it’s more sustainable. And because it's based on two very powerful motives, protecting our children and making a living/making a profit, it's grounded in reality, although because of vested interests, it's an uphill battle. 3. Pricing that tells the truth. One of the keys to making that happen: not only eliminating subsidies for polluters but a predictably increasing tax on pollution so that a) the market has incentive, certainty & time to figure out how to best reduce pollution, and b) reducing pollution becomes more profitable than polluting!

What types of events are you interested in seeing for the group?

Hiking, dancing, dinner parties, discussions, meeting with our Senators, demonstrations, teach-ins, game nights, petitioning and surprise, surprise, Tom has two of those on TimeToGetSmarter.org :)

Introduction

Hello All, my name is Tom Kahan and I've lived in this oh so amazing Bay Area since I was two. And ever since I don't know when, I've been a progressive. Having a mom who survived the Holocaust and growing up in Oakland in the 60's sealed my fate :)
