Beijing Olympics: Is a Gas Mask a Performance Enhancer?

Click on image to enlarge.

Will wearing a gas mask at the Beijing Olympics disqualify an athlete for using a "performance enhancer"?

Half of Beijing's 3.3 million vehicles will be pulled off the roads and many polluting factories will be shuttered. Chemical plants, power stations and foundries left open have to cut emissions by 30 percent - and dust-spewing construction in the capital will be halted.

In a highly stage-managed Olympics aimed at showing off the rising power of the 21st century, no challenge is greater than producing crystalline air for 10,500 of the world's greatest athletes.

"Pea-soup air at the opening ceremony would be their worst nightmare," said Victor Cha, director of Asian Studies at Georgetown University.

From RidesAPaleHorse:

"Oh....wait...WE are the major polluters! How DARE China try and take that away from us? This means WAR!!!"

How come Al Gore and the Enviro-weenies are silent on this?

Because they probably know the Chinese would give their crackpot theories the proper response they deserve.
