Global Warming Dupes Target Barbecues

There aren't many things we won't be asked to sacrifice in the name of the discredited yet persisting hoax known as global warming. In Belgium, bureauweenies are now taxing barbecues on the grounds that like everything else associated with the activities of humans and other animals, barbecues produce CO2. Firing up your Belgian barbie will cost a draconian €20.
Compliance will be monitored using helicopters with thermal sensors. Yes, I'm serious. Presumably they will be pixie-dust–powered helicopters that don't produce any CO2.
