For those who don’t know, China’s environment isn’t one of the friendliest out there; in fact, they have so much air pollution that people have actually been advised to stay indoors or wear facemasks if they have to leave the house.
The pollution in Beijing particularly has built up to such levels that it has actually been deemed an ‘Airmageddon’ since air pollution has reached levels 40 times higher than the World Health Organization’s ‘safe limit’.
In order to combat this continuing rise in air pollution, the Chinese government have proposed a ban on barbecues as they believe this contributes significantly to the air pollution in Beijing and surrounding areas.
BBQBarbecues, a UK-based online retailer comments on the proposed ban: “Implementing a ban on barbecues in order to combat pollution doesn't seem to be a step in the right direction. Chinese residents are already up in arms about it and the rest of the world are still trying to play catch-up and understand the reasoning behind such a legislation. With smoke billowing out of power plant chimneys all over the city, is banning barbecues really going to make a dramatic impact? Aside from depriving people of nice tasting food, it appears as if the ban will be next to useless...”
Arguably, other countries should look at their own pollution statistics and realise how easy is it to let things get out of control – if anything, the rest of the world should see this as a warning. It’s time to take preventative steps to ensure nobody follows in the same footsteps as Beijing; people love barbecued food too much to have it banned.
However, since everyone in the UK can still enjoy a good barbecue, why not get it out this weekend and grill yourself a mean steak? For those who haven’t got a bbq grill – how is that even possible? Click here right now and get one whilst everyone’s still allowed to use them...!
So is there any upside to banning barbecues? Arguably, it might lead the population to eat food with fewer carcinogens; but in the grand scheme of things, simply trying to breathe in fresh air is a bigger issue. However, some people argue in favour of the barbecue ban; one person on Twitter stated: "If it reduces air pollution even a fraction of a percent, it's an improvement, not a big one, but every little counts."
