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!
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 :)
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 :)
