To Fight Global Warming, Belgium Imposes Tax On... Barbeque
The government of Belgium's French-speaking region of Wallonia,hojogioehhhbnlkjjndk. Sorry, that was my jaw hitting the keyboard.
... which has a population of about 4 million, has approved a tax on barbequing, local media reported. Experts said that between 50 and 100 grams of CO2, a so-called greenhouse gas, is emitted during barbequing. Beginning June 2007, residents of Wallonia will have to pay 20 euros for a grilling session. The local authorities plan to monitor compliance with the new tax legislation from helicopters, whose thermal sensors will detect burning grills.It's a good thing that Belgium's entire helicopter fleet is now fueled by starshine and sugar-plums, or else this anti-carbon initiative might be somewhat counterproductive. Thanks to CAD Daddy.
1 Hah! Let's see the flemmings start barbecuing in their garages now while the helicopters drive around wasting gas.

11 Wait a second ... the report is complaining about 50 to 100 grams of carbon dioxide? That's somewhere between 1.5 and three ounces. I put out about that much just breathing!
I assume that the government of Wallonia (which is located near Freedonia and Sylvania) will next monitor breathing via helicopters. No doubt to napalm and strafe anyone who's spewing more than his allotted ration of greenhouse gases into Mother Gaia's pristine atmosphere.

15 That's nothing. Out here in Wyoming, we have lots of cows that fart, causing massive global warming and eventually the death of all life on this planet. So ranchers have to get a fart permit and pay a tax. If they don't, we have jumbo jets cruising the skies at all time. If the jets spot an unlicensed herd, they drop a load of coal and set it on fire, lighting a beacon for law enforcement authorities to drive out in their SUVs and slaughter the cattle to they can rot.

17 By buying those helicopters the Belgian government shows it is a bought and paid for by the starshine and sugraplums lobby.

18 Drew, for the Jillionth time... I have no problem with people eating cows. I have heard they are quite tasty. I just don't want to eat them myself. My religion is personal to me. I don't go around imposing it on others, like some religion of peace. I may even join you for a barbecue, as long as you also have some chicken/fish/pork available.

Yes I fucking remember that! Bunch of stinky nitwits pooping in bags and throwing them in the backyard with the garden hose on to create a natural wetland (which the government then gets immediate regulatory control of).
All I know is, my toilet does not work for shit (literally). It gets clogged constantly.
And don't even ask me about that time I tried to flush that box of shitty "Original" chicken in a biscuit crackers down it.

30 Crap! They're charging 20 euros per grilling session ($26).
This has me seriously steamed, but now I have the rest of my day mapped out: Take a hunk of venison out the freezer. Get the charcoal and wood chips ready. Bring my kid home from school. Go to the gun store and purchase some ammo. A glass of wine, or two. Make the fire, and cook the meat.
Those are soothing activities.

31 The Daily Mail ran a story like this as well, which they've since pulled.
The measures, which have been approved by the Climate Change Unit of the Department of Environment, Fisheries and Rural Affairs, are likely to severely curtail the number of barbecues Britons enjoy this summer.
Councils will approve barbecues only if the householder has bought a so-called carbon offset.
These should cost no more than £5 each and will allow sufficient barbecuing - as long as the cook is proficient - to create 20 steaks, or 40 if you like them rare.

Posted by: stace at April 03, 2007 04:06 PM (A56/D)
35 I left out the best parts:
Councils will appoint barbecue inspectors who will have the power to enter residents’ gardens and check whether any charcoal has been burnt.
The smell of burning, the remains of cooked burgers or a charred kebab stick will all be sufficient for them to apply on-the-spot fines of up to £50.
A spokesman for BQ said they were looking at producing new ‘green’ barbecues to cut down CO2 emissions.
One idea is to harness the warmth created by rotting compost, but these would require a chef to start cooking days in advance.
So-called ‘friction barbecues’ powered by a guest on a stationary exercise bike are also being examined.

I do wear leather. I know, there is a logical conflict there. I have not given it serious thought.
I have never tried beef. Ox and cow are the same animal with different gender. So it is off limits too.
I don't know about buffalo. Do people eat a buffalo? I am willing to try. But I want to try venisson first.

52 Tushar - I seldom eat beef anymore because buffalo is lower in calories, lower in fat, has a wonderful flavor and is very tender. (If you're cooking it, cook it at a lower temperature than beef and use moisture retaining cooking methods, like searing, because it can get a bit dry.)
Which gives me an idea -- I'm going to fire up the bbq and grill us some buffalo steaks for dinner.

Good point. Imagine how much those hippie joggers (or is it a soft j ? yoggers, whatever) contribute to the great Global Warming - have you ever seen how much they huff and puff? Why, I myslef must be damn close to carbon neutral simply by the fact that I sit on my lazy ass all day expending as little energy as possible.
Tushar - just make sure you're not getting Beefalo (yes it's real). They have actually crossbred cows buffalo, I think for fat/flavor.

59 I am not so fond of venison, too strong.
Depends on where it comes from and how it's buchered and prepared. Where I hunt they're all corn and soybean fed, and we butcher them ourselves to make sure no tallow or bone fragments that lead to a "gamey" taste remain in the meat. I've yet to encounter anyone who's tried my venison not like it- including people who previously said they didn't care for venison.
Now if you hunt somewhere where the deer eat acorns, tree bark and other crap, then bring it to a butcher who mangles it with a bone saw, yeah- it's not going to be so good.
Buffalo is good too, but I'll take a marinaded venison steak over just about anything else.

I'd like it more if more than just one out of every ten cans would be good. It seems like 90% of the cans I open are half mush. Only once in a while do I open a can to nice, firm chunky white meat.
(No offense, Tushar, on the white meat comment.)

66 "I don't know about buffalo. Do people eat a buffalo?"
Buffalo (bison) is tasty - even if Ted Turner raises 'em. But it has a lot less fat than beef, so you have to cook it carefully, or it turns into shoeleather.
Hollowpoint, your venison sounds great.So, where do you live? And when do we eat? I'll bring the beer!
Posted by: Brown Line at April 03, 2007 07:13 PM (mnTqB)
67 Rabbit is good. Rabbit is some of the best meat around.
The only Ox I've had is ox tail stew, which was basically beef. Very tender though. Tails are tender, cheeks are very tender, and the neckmeat is very tender as well. Good places on most animals to eat. Also liver, but only on the young immature animals. On an adult it is garbage.
Pheasant is not bad. Duck is excellent.
Aligator kinda sucks but it's edible. Ditto snake.
Venison is basically tough, gamey beef. A bit better flavor but too tough and too gamey.
And it makes a big difference whether or not you eat a male or a female. The females test better. The testosterone and various otherhormonestaste bad.
That's why, if your gonna eat males, it's better they have the balls cut off before puberty like capons. But obviously that's only with farmed animals.
Posted by: Entropy at April 03, 2007 07:42 PM (HgAV0)
68 The taco stand I use to eat at got closed down by the health department for serving alley cats.
But they were damn good tacos. They looked funny though, the meat had a metallic green tint to it that was allways suspicious.
But it was damn good. Very tender. And never any grissle. And I don't really like cats anyway. So I'd still eat there if they hadn't closed it down.
If I ever go to Japan or something I'll eat some cat.

<b>People are now <i>paying a tax</i> to cook meat with fire. For the first time in human history!</b>

Also, they are paying the taxes that pay for the helicopter and the helicopter's fuel.
So it's all good, see?

75 Furthermore, since cooking indoors in the Summertime creates unpleasant heat in the home, some people will be tempted to place a hotplate upon some cinderblocks in their garden, and cook their food there while the weather is warm.
To the government, this is an 'outdoor kitchen,' i.e., an extension of the home, and it too will be taxed.
You think of cooking food with fire as an elemental aspect of being human? Stupid monkey!
Ho ho ho NO! In our brave new vision of the world, only the rich will be able to afford to cook food with fire.
