    CHINA is considering a ban on barbecues to help reduce air pollution in built-up areas after heavy smog recently choked large swathes of the country, state media reports.

    What a joke............

    it seems there will be a crack down on outdoors BBQ in Beijing....

    The country's environmental watchdog has issued draft guidelines advising major cities to adopt legislation banning "barbecue-related activities", official news agency Xinhua said on Wednesday, risking the ire of street food-loving locals.

    The move comes after extreme pollution last month choked Beijing and large areas of northern China, prompting health fears and sparking an angry reaction from residents, many of whom donned face masks.

    The pollution in the capital was blamed on emissions from coal-burning in power stations and exhaust fumes from vehicles on choked streets, with Beijing ordering the emergency closure of factories.

    But Xinhua said the Ministry of Environmental Protection earlier this month issued draft guidelines that also branded barbecues part of the problem.

    It cited an anonymous official as calling on the public to abstain from outdoor grilling in favour of a more environmentally-friendly way of life.

    Chuan'r is what lured so many laoweizards to the Heavenly Kingdom in the first place. It rounded off the mediocre beer and awful sorghum liquor, and assured us that Han people can appreciate the finer points of ethnic minority culture. Western media may have jumped the gun when they said Beijing's airpocalypse would result in expats leaving Beijing in droves, but if municipal administrators actually follow through with this initiative, there will be hell to pay. And by that I mean some foreign devils are gonna seriously disrupt the social order and create chaos in the society!

    They may take our lives, but they will never take our KEBAB.

    This, also "public cars" driven by officials. Li Gang can hail one of those black "luxury" taxis or those other fancy cabs that look like PT Cruisers.
