Barbecue grills stand no chance in China, well at least for right now. It seems that the Chinese Government is looking to curb some pollution, and so they are destroying barbecue grills to help curb that dreaded pollution in Beijing.
They have so far destroyed about 500 grills, but they have really only begun. Do they really think that destroying barbecue grills is really going to make a difference.
“This action will help local residents, but to deal with the bigger air quality problem we need to have priorities and I think one of the major priorities should still be the motor vehicle emissions,” said Ma, director of the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs. He said the focus should be on improving the fuel quality and emissions control of heavy duty diesel trucks, while also involving the surrounding regions, not just Beijing.
I bet they would have more luck starting with something else, but then again, I am not a genius.
