Chinese Millionaire Fights Pollution - 21 Feb 2013
Recent and archive images of Chinese multimillionaire Chen Guangbiao, a high-profile philanthropist and China’s self-billed number one environmentalist.

China's air pollution has rekindled a campaign by the exuberant Guangbiao, who has organized several environmental events
in the past. Weeks ago Chen, who made his fortune in the recycling business, handed out soda pop-sized cans of air, purportedly from far-flung and pristine regions of China, from Xinjiang in the far northwest to Taiwan off China's southeast coast.
