ABSTRACT
The author comments on environmental and legal non-governmental organizations (NGO) in China that are exposing China's lax standards on pollution control and chemical waste. A network of community activists and lone environmentalists informally reports abuses to journalists and bigger NGO groups in Beijing, creating a great deal of momentum in the fight to keep pollution in check. But, the author emphasizes, these NGO act differently to their international cousins, such as Greenpeace.
