Cleaner air from tackling climate change would save millions of lives, says study

Cleaner air from tackling climate change would save millions of lives, says study | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it
Tackling climate change would save millions of lives a year by the end of the century purely as a result of the decrease in air pollution, according to a new study. The study is published as scientists from around the globe gather in Stockholm to thrash out final details of a landmark assessment of climate science. Their final report is due to be released this Friday and will set out projections of wide-ranging impacts of global warming from droughts to floods to sea-level rise. The research suggests that the benefits of cuts to air pollution from curbing fossil-fuel use justify action alone — even without other climate impacts such as more extreme weather and sea-level rise. “It is pretty striking that you can make an argument purely on health grounds to control climate change,” says Jason West, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, whose work was published in Nature Climate Change.

3 Ways Color Can Influence Buying Behavior

3 Ways Color Can Influence Buying Behavior | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it
There are many things that influence human behavior and color is definitely one of them. The effect is often so subtle that we have no conscious realization that we are being influenced by color...Research shows however, that color can actually influence buying behavior. In fact, color has the power to evoke strong emotional responses and depending on your culture and your geographic location, using the wrong color could be enough to turn potential and existing customers away from your business. As a result many marketers, like myself, have studied the meaning of color and the psychology behind color. So let’s take a 50,000 foot view of color and give you some tips to help you influence customers the right way....

Scientists More Certain Humans Are Heating the Planet | MIT Technology Review | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it
The latest report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that scientists are more certain than ever that humans are causing global warming, and that climate change will get worse if greenhouse gas levels continue to rise. The report is influential with policymakers because it represents the consensus of hundreds of scientists who have worked for years to draw conclusions from the scientific research on climate change. The report, the first of four IPCC reports scheduled for this year, focuses on the science of climate change. The other reports will take a closer look at the likely impacts of climate change and what can be done to minimize them.

The Science Behind Using Online Communities To Change Behavior | TechCrunch | Global Growth Relations | Scoop.it
“ IIs it just me, or is it impossible to talk to technology entrepreneurs without mentioning user engagement and behavior? I’m a behavioral psychologist, so that might be why I keep having conversations about engagement, but I don’t think that’s the only reason. I think it’s because entrepreneurs have realized that behavior change and engagement is critical to technology development (and to everything else in our lives). Whether we’re trying to get people to download or keep playing our fantasy sports applications, convince ourselves to avoid that extra scoop of ice cream, or get our neighbor to stop hitting her snooze button at 5:00, 5:10, and 5:20 a.m., we understand how difficult it can be to engage people and change behavior.”

Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/
