Wal-Mart Uses its Economic Clout to Force Better Environmental Practices in China

For the sake of balance, I think Wal-Mart should get credit for the good it does when it does well.
It's fair game to note that Wal-Mart comes late to this game, but their arrival is welcome. In that way this is similar to the integration of the military that Truman forced. Once the military took the bit, it became a model of integration and our all-volunteer force is among the finest, most-capable and professional forces in the world. Imagine the scale of the positive environmental impact that this can have if Wal-Mart enforces this standard for it's Chinese suppliers. It could be huge, and China is one of the worst environmental offenders in the world.
