California moves toward ban on gas lawnmowers and leaf blowers - Los Angeles Times
latimes.com/california/story/2

"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.

@pete
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.
