I just read this article. This includes generators, chainsaws, off-road vehicles, lawn mowers, weed trimmers and anything that is not zero emissions. The bureaucrats have a 30 million dollar budget to help gardeners make the transition since battery powered tools cost twice as much. What the heck. This is terrible news.

California should have to start opening mining and refining facilities to account for the ridiculous amount of batteries. They should also have to have their own plastic factories. All zero emissions of course...

California will need a bunch more battery recycle stations to keep up with the ones that burn out. That just means more chance of a hazardous material leak.

Yea, then they'll have to blame all the poor air quality on Nevada or Oregon, it would never be a commercial endeavour.

And im sure there own forest "megafires" would have absolutely nothing to do with their poor air quality standards either...lol.

We were gagging on their forest fires smoke even here in NM an hour and a half away from the Mexican border and right next door to El Paso Texas...lol.
