California moves toward ban on gas lawnmowers and leaf blowers - Los Angeles Times

"The new law applies to any engine that produces less than 25 gross horsepower, including lawn mowers, weed trimmers, chainsaws, golf carts, specialty vehicles, generators and pumps."

"...[California] state requirement that portable generators be zero-emission."

How the fuck do they expect to get zero-emission portable generators? The energy density of batteries doesn't even come close.

Their intention may be to force Californians to replace their generators with solar panels. I suspect that the state receives a kickback from the Federal government for each solar panel purchased in CA.

@pete it's not about energy source, it's all about control.
