California Set to Debate Possible Ban on Gas-Powered Lawn Equipment

Just where does California think they’ll get the money for this? From the taxpayer.

When it comes to regulation of your everyday life, no one does it quite like California.

The democratically controlled state has long been the poster child for progressive politics and the cultural coddling of their citizens.  California is synonymous with the suddenly popular slang term “woke”, to sum it up nicely.

Now, in their latest bid to tell Californians exactly what to do and when to do it, the Golden State is considering caving to the climate crisis crowd and banning the use of gasoline-powered lawn care machines.

At least 60 cities in California have some kind of ban on gas-powered garden tools, but now state regulators are concerned about the impacts these tools could be having on the environment.

According to the California Air Resources Board, running a gas-powered lawnmower for an hour will produce the same amount of air pollution as a Toyota Camry driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

There are millions more small off-road engines (i.e.: gas-powered lawnmowers and leaf blowers) in California than there are light-duty passenger cars, according to the board’s estimates.

Of course, this ban would cost the taxpayers of California a pretty penny:  They would either be forced to purchase their own, new, battery-powered machines, subsidize equipment for those who can’t afford it, or both.
