The rise of China's political opposition

Ooska news reports that some Chinese are upset at the poor quality of environmental conditions and demanding that the government act to improve those conditions.

I put "environmental water" in Part II of my book (Social water choices) due to its political nature. This classification -- and the increasing intensity of debate -- makes me wonder if "environmental awareness" among the Chinese middle class has sowed the seeds of a civil society that may challenge the power of the communist party -- or maybe they will be ignored or bought off.

What do you think?
