BEIJING - Beijing is waging a war against air pollution, one barbecue at a time. Authorities in the capital have destroyed more than 500 open-air barbecues "to cut PM2.5" - the tiny particulate matter in the air that can enter deep into the lungs. Photos carried by state media showed workers on Tuesday cutting pieces of metal with sparks flying as city wardens looked on.
Environmental campaigner Ma Jun said residents had complained to environmental agencies in the past about the odor and smoke from open-air barbecues.
No dogs cooked though, and that omission was a shame to be rectified at the next outing.
So go after the families who have no other source of cooking at home or heaven forbid actually make a paltry living as a street vendor?
Thanks for posting the picture! One each genuine Chinese BBQ. They have them outside some of the small Mom & Pop eateries and they do good business. The only problem with the crack down on the BBQ's is that they only come out in the late afternoon and evenings.
