California took another step toward its goal of ridding the state of all gas-powered engines thanks to a new bill signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday. The new law will ban the sale of all off-road, gas-powered engines, including generators, lawn equipment, pressure washers, chainsaws, weed trimmers, and even golf carts. Under the new law , these machines must be zero-emissions, meaning they will have to be either battery-powered or plug-in, according to the Los Angeles Times .

It's a bit insane, but it's California. I could almost understand banning 2 strokes, but banning them all is kinda nuts. Banning generators is truly insane, but Chain saws isn't much better.

Just like with Covid restrictions, let’s see if Newsom follows his own laws or if someone records gas powered equipment at the Governor’s mansion, or his auntie’s vineyard. California, the next time you have a chance to rid yourself of a lousy governor, do it.

Under the new law, these machines must be zero-emissions, meaning they will have to be either battery-powered or plug-in, according to the Los Angeles Times. Does this mean I can't use my 5KW gas-powered generator to keep the fridge and deep freezer running when the power goes out across the state? Only to an idiot does "plug-in" = zero emissions. And "battery-powered" obviously means rechargeable batteries, so even more electricity generated by fossil fuel coming from...somewhere. 2024 - about the time I plan to retire and relocate to Florida.

#14, that's hilarious. The power a human can put out is amazingly low. Back in engineering school, when working on hybrid electric vehicles, for Engineer's Week we hooked up a stationary bike to a generator and hooked it to two standard incandescent light bulbs to demonstrate what 100 watts was really like. One bulb was a piddly 40 watts and the other a normal 100 watts, and the rider could switch on one, or the other or both. Riders did fine powering the 40 watt bulb, but when they went to the 100 watt bulb, they found it was work. With both bulbs on, even the best were quickly tiring, bulbs dimming. A SMALL portable generator can put out 2,000 watts forever, and a typical medium one is 4 to 6,000 watts. The small will supply twenty 100 watt bulbs, and the medium, sixty 100 watt bulbs. Whole house standby units are often 15,000 watts and more. 150 of the 100 watt bulbs. People power is pathetic.

While most will focus on the long list of lawn equipment, the most damaging part of this is the ban on gas powered generators. Without gas powered generators, when the power grid goes down individuals will be left with no back-up options in their homes. Also, there will be no back-up options for charging all those electric cars.

That will be great after the next earthquake of wildfire when there is no electricity to power, or ways to charge all of the battery powered things being mandated. Of course, when all of the windmills and solar panels are destroyed by the fires and earthquakes there will be no power for anything so nobody will be able to drive anywhere in their battery powered cars either.

When politics is your religion and government is your God, a public building is your church.The four-hour disturbance at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, according to Beltway aristocracy and the media, wasn’t a legitimate protest that turned violent in some areas—it was a sacrilege. Never mind that the building itself sustained minimal damage—early reports estimated $30 million for repairs but the actual figure is around $1 million—the real vandalism occurred when thousands of Americans wearing MAGA hats invaded the cathedral of government power occupied by America’s political deity.And the alleged apostates are paying a dear price.

The U.S. has agreed to provide humanitarian aid to a desperately poor Afghanistan on the brink of an economic disaster, while refusing to give political recognition to the country's new Taliban rulers, the Taliban said Sunday. The statement came at the end of the first direct talks between the former foes since the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. troops at the end of August. There was no immediate comment from the U.S. on the weekend meeting. The Taliban said the talks held in Doha, Qatar, 'went well,' with Washington freeing up humanitarian aid to Afghanistan after agreeing not to link such assistance to formal recognition of the Taliban.

A 16-year-old student in Wyoming was arrested and the entire school was placed on lockdown — all because she refused to wear a mask. Grace Smith, 16, had already been suspended twice from Laramie High School in Wyoming for refusing to wear masks in class. As the brave student attempted to go to class unmuzzled once again, she was met with police and given a $500 citation. When she was told to leave the school, she refused to comply. At that point, she was handcuffed and arrested. As the situation unfolded, an announcement over the loudspeaker said that “we are in a lockdown, please stay in your rooms.”

Virginia’s gubernatorial contest between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe clearly has supporters of the latter worried. Recent polls show a far tighter race than they expected. Consequently, it was all but inevitable that McAuliffe’s allies would attempt to meddle with election laws using public health as a pretext. Sure enough, the Democrat-dominated Fairfax Board of Supervisors has asked Gov. Ralph Northam to waive the witness signature requirement that Virginia law stipulates for all absentee ballots. Board Chairman Jeffrey McKay insists that the waiver is needed due to the threat of COVID-19, yet cases are declining.
