Ecological Hardliner goes west



Seems that environmental protection becomes more and more important to the Chinese government. At least if you believe that Pan Yue (Deputy Director of the State Environmental Protection Administration of the PRC) means what he says. Running Dog already wondered some time ago if the environmental watchdog has grown some teeth, and now Pan Yue even gives interviews to western media in which he states that "The Chinese Miracle Will End Soon" (in the English edition of the German based magazin Spiegel) if there is nothing done about environmental pollution. Lets hope he not only means what he says, but also has the means and the backup to do it.
