Bbq emmits as much carbon as a large coal factory.

You will no longer plan family BBQs after hearing about this, right?

Im a climate change admitter and a luke warmest in that I am skeptical humans are strictly responsible. But just that alone makes me a climate change denier.

One of the great summer american pastimes has been declared hazardous to the planet.
Enjoy your veggie burgers.

It isn't really that barbecuing has been "declared" hazardous, but that unsurprisingly it accounts for lots of carbon going into the atmosphere, just like so many other of our activities or the activities (i.e. farting) of our livestock. My personal villain is the lawnmower, probably because I have to push one so much in my yard. I'd be willing to bet that compared to lawnmower emissions those of gas grills are minute. I don't own a gas grill, or a string trimmer, because I dislike having unnecessary equipment that won't last long anyway.
