<p><strong>Recent evidence shows that, if done right, business can alleviate suffering and elevate joy in our lives--while still delivering extraordinary performance.</strong></p><p>Employees, customers, investors--all want to do business with companies that have a positive impact on people, communities, and the environment. Even so, many in the business world remain skeptical of the idea that focusing on human flourishing makes you more profitable.

<p>Though the scientific community largely agrees that climate change is underway, debates about this issue remain fiercely polarized. These conversations have become a rhetorical contest, one where opposing sides try to achieve victory through playing on fear, distrust, and intolerance. At its heart, this split no longer concerns carbon dioxide, greenhouse gases, or climate modeling; rather, it is the product of contrasting, deeply entrenched worldviews. This brief examines what causes people to reject or accept the scientific consensus on climate change. Synthesizing evidence from sociology, psychology, and political science, Andrew J. Hoffman lays bare the opposing cultural lenses through which science is interpreted. He then extracts lessons from major cultural shifts in the past to engender a better understanding of the problem and motivate the public to take action. <i>How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate</i> makes a powerful case for a more scientifically literate public, a more socially engaged scientific community, and a more thoughtful mode of public discourse.</p>

<p><em>A man-bites-dog, true crime comedy caper that's 100% nonfiction...</em><br /></p><p><strong>Fraud costs Americans over a <u>trillion</u> dollars per year. So in Sin City, we made fraud prevention into an extreme sport.</strong><br /></p><p>Las Vegas, founded on the idea of getting people to <em>not</em> think about the long-term consequences of their actions, seems like the last place anyone would go to study history and sustainability. But look closer. Las Vegas is also the City of Second Chances, the surrounding Mojave Desert a land of mirages. Here the line separating reality and fantasy gets blurred. So do the lines separating graduate school, entrepreneurship, journalism, and fraud.<br /></p><p>When I first went local, enrolling at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, I made new friends - and a few enemies. Among them: a young British tycoon who bought Mike Tyson鈥檚 mansion, poker players and golf hustlers, FBI agents and ex-cons, friendly neighborhood bounty hunters, and one charismatic frenemy: a young, clean energy technology entrepreneur named Xavier.<br /></p><p>As The Strip seduces me, I uncover a complex maze of scams ranging from Photoshop forgeries, mortgage fraud, identity theft, and crowdfunding to hacking, hypnosis, and intellectual property theft. The schemes span from Sin City to the Rocky Mountains, China, and into the headquarters of Silicon Valley鈥檚 best-known clean energy nonprofit. As privacy disappears in the 21<sup>st</sup> century, turnabout is fair play. The hunter becomes the hunted. In Sin City, you can be whoever you want to be 鈥?but you have to pay the consequences. <strong>What is the ultimate Vegas rush: pulling off a multimillion-dollar con job 鈥?or blowing one up?</strong></p><p><br /></p>

<p>鈥淢oving to a Finite Earth Economy 鈥?Crew Manual鈥?is a book that, in an all-inclusive way, outlines what humanity needs to do to successfully address the root cause of our climate emergency<br /><br /></p><p>When it comes to climate change, the past doesn't equal the future. What is happening now has never occurred during humanity鈥檚 time on Earth. Who better than a futurist to address this? Futurist David Houle immersed himself in all facets of global warming and climate change over the past four years. He spent two years researching, writing and co-authoring "This Spaceship Earth". What he learned in that process prompted Houle to cofound a global nonprofit: thispaceshipearth.org.<br /><br /></p><p>As a result, Houle was invited to speak at the EPA, at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and at numerous other environmental gatherings and conferences around the globe. Houle wrote, "It is my fundamental responsibility as a futurist to be right about the future, and to offer possible suggestions on how best to navigate it. This book does just that for the existential threat that is climate change."<br /><br /></p><p>This is NOT another long, dense, difficult to read book arguing about whether climate change is real. It accepts that it is, that it is caused by us, and sets forth what we must do. The need for URGENCY is reinforced throughout the book. Houle has no qualms about stating the facts as he sees them. We have until 2030 and we haven't a minute to waste.<br /><br /></p><p>Houle and his co-author, Bob Leonard, make the case for humanity to move to a Finite Earth Economy as fully as possible by 2030. They discuss the new metrics and technologies needed to advance from here to there. Houle and Leonard provide clarity as to what must be done at all levels of humanity from global corporations and nation state governments all the way to individuals. This book also deals with two major issues rarely covered in climate change literature: population management and strategic retreat. This book answers the question: 鈥淲hat can we do to successfully prevail over climate change?鈥?lt;br /><br /></p><p>The time for dealing with denial is over. Now is the time to focus on solutions鈥?solutions that impact every facet of modern life. For those of you who are ready to do something about climate change, this book will help you walk your talk. 鈥淢oving to a Finite Earth Economy鈥?is a clear-eyed look at what鈥檚 coming, and what we can do about it.</p>

Sharon Rowe's simple shift in thinking is a profound idea, precisely what we need to hear.鈥?lt;br />鈥擲eth Godin, author of Linchpin<br /><br />Too many of us feel trapped by work that keeps us from living our purpose.

As an entrepreneur and mother, Rowe is most concerned with putting family first, maintaining financial security, and doing something that makes an impact in the world. Using the success story of Eco-Bags Products, Rowe distills the step-by-step process of building a profitable, right-scaled, sustainable venture that doesn't compromise your values. She shows you how to test your concept, manage your money and priorities, and more, while staying true to the "tiny" ethos.<br />
