Panasonic's announcement that it's going to give hazard pay to workers stationed in some of China's most polluted cities is not only the groundbreaking for the company but for the country as well. Too bad this announcement came in under-the-radar within mainstream environmental circles.

No more climate change.

Great article.  As someone who is involved in marketing and branding for green companies, I agree with the premise that the conversation should move away from strictly being about climate change, as it is such a hot issue, and move towards energy saving and cost reduction. However, climate change must still be discussed and promoted for those who believe in the cause-just as big brands and political candidates still promote and play to their bases.  You don't want to take them for granted and have them forget about the cause - or move on to a different cause altogether.  

However to build the base, other issues, such as money saved by reduced oil consumption and possibly new job openings in wind power, will bring more people into the fold-- even without their full support on environmental issues (or even indifference or apathy toward the environment). You don't have to be pro-environment or a "leftist liberal" to care about saving $300-$500 a year in fuel costs each year!  

There are many smart ways to "pick off" more members for energy reduction--we just need to present the evidence in a way that each group wants to hear--thus furthering our cause in both the long and short term. It is a generational movement, as well as geographic and educational and each segment needs to be presented with the information in a "what's in it for me" presentation or discussion.
