Good question.  As a psychologist I can assure everyone that quantitative
information is unlikely to have a large effect on the behaviour of
individuals.  The clearest guideline would be to have the carbon emissions
reflected in the cost of different options.  This moves the problem of
persuasion from influencing the general public to influencing our political
leaders to changing taxation policies or regulating prices.
