Details

In this talk, Sudhanshu “Suds” Jain will discuss the new federal Carbon Tax Bill (HR 763) that was introduced a few weeks ago. He will compare it with the Green New Deal and the California bill, AB 40, which would eliminate fossil fuel cars in California.

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 volunteer full-time on mitigating climate change.

He has installed solar panels on low income housing with Grid Alternatives. As part of Citizen's Climate Lobby, he leads a group of Bay Area volunteers which meets with members of Congress to advocate for a Carbon Tax with 100% revenue recycling (dividends to consumers). He is on the board of Acterra, a 48 year old environmental non-profit and he chairs the planning commission in Santa Clara. Suds earned his BS and MSEE degrees from MIT.

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