Californias war on leaf blowers

This started many years ago as a noise pollution issue. It then morphed into an air pollution issue that forced a ban on 2 stroke motors. Now they're getting back on their horse to force that all motorized lawn and garden tools be electric. This story is very well written without the usual hysteronics about doom tomorrow etc.
Calif tried to ban outdoor BBQs in the LA basin but the backlash from many of the BBQ lovers that supported the Dems caused them to back off. What they did was try to get rid of the fire starters and that kept everyone in their camp.
