  How can such pollution be prevented. Only by the pressure and
  activity of an independent green watchdog.  Examples of this are

  There were none in the USSR. There are some in the USA and
  Europe. But they are not encouraged, or financed by government.
  Just the opposite.

This is not true. I remember reading in the late 70s or early
80s reports in New Scientist of the campaigns by scientists in
the Siberian region against the opening of a factory on
lake Baikal, it was either a Viscose or a Paper Pulp factory
( anyway it used wood pulp). This threatened to pollute the late.
The campaign got the factory development stopped.
