In an attempt to cut back on air pollution, Beijing has destroyed more than 500 open-air barbecues.
Authorities say that by destroying barbecues, the city will cut back on the tiny particle PM2.5 which can enter deep into the lungs. State media showed images of workers destroying barbecues, and it's reported "citizen bloggers" have mocked the efforts and said the government should be focusing their efforts on larger sources of pollution.
He added that the government should be focusing on controlling the emissions of diesel trucks, improving fuel quality, and involving surrounding communities, not just Beijing, in on the efforts.
