Minnesota Democrat lawmakers push ban
on gas-powered lawn mowers, chainsaws
to curb 'climate pollution'

Original Article

Two Minnesota Democratic lawmakers are proposing a pair of bills that would significantly impact the state's backyards and neighborhood ice rinks in an effort to combat climate change. State Reps. Jerry Newton and Heather Edelson, members of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, introduced legislation on Monday that would block the sale of common landscaping appliances like lawn mowers and chainsaws as well ice resurfacing machines such as Zambonis, requiring that only electric battery versions be sold in the state starting Jan. 1, 2025. The ban on lawn and garden equipment would include any machine that uses "a spark ignition engine rated


Communists on the march. They just use 'climate change' as an excuse for the government to reach down and control your every move.

I actually agree with this but not for any climate hoax. I switched over my lawn tools, mower, weed whacker, hedge cutters, pole saw, mini-tiller to electric years ago. They are more convenient, work very well, and most importantly are QUIET. I could mow the lawn in the middle of the night without disturbing my neighbors. Yes, the batteries are a hassle, but so is keeping containers of gasoline. I still use a gasoline powered snow blower and chainsaw, because they need the extra power, but I'm not out there every week with them. Electric is still not practical for lawn care business use however.

It puzzles me why Minnesota gives a otter's bum about the climate. I'll believe it when they cancel any type of Winterfest aside from fishing on frozen lakes. Or when TC acknowledge the existence of ''northeast.'' Even if an erstwhile Viking farts, it just blows on over to Canada.

Climate is all over the Earth. Has anyone proposed what is the ideal climate goal for everywhere? Minnesota is very cold in winter and somewhat pleasant in summer. Will the climate freaks decide to make MN just cool in winter and just warm in summer? Going electric for all power just repositions the pollution to other places and then transfers the power to the consumer via wires, (which have high losses the farther that the wires stretch) And all those batteries needed for those tools, they fail after a few years and must be replaced at a high cost. A gas powered lawn mower, chainsaw, etc. will last for 20-30 years and keep working with minimal maintenance. (I have a chain saw my father bought in 1963 and still use it, starts every time)

The Tree Huggers want to replace all the gas powered devices with electric. Where is all that electricity going to come from? Wind and solar are a joke. The only ways of generating enough electricity in the amounts needed by an modern industrial society are hydro, nuclear, and fossil fuels. All three are problems for the Warmies. Would love for my yard to go back to what nature had in mind. But the neighbors would complain.

When my lawnmower or weed whacker or Chain saw run out of gas, I simply put more in and am ready to go in seconds. I don't have to wait for hours while it charges. The electric appliances do not have the power of the gas. The noise? Well I don't cut my grass in the middle of the night. I have battery powered drills and other things, and when the batteries go bad the cost of the battery is such that I just throw the tool away and buy another. Batteries die and they are a hazardous waste.

In many neighborhoods, people use yard services. I’m not sure how those guys (a few girls) will adapt to mandatory batteries. I think the first step would be to stop bidet from burning 700,000 pounds of jet fuel a week so he can get a break from the torture of living in the horrible white house.

I already have electric tools, a weedeater, a tree trimmer, a small chainsaw, etc because it's more convenient than items powered by gas or used with electric cords. Plus, I'm not too fond of the new gas cans that are mandated these days. Going electric works for the average home and yard. Having a more significant acreage or greater needs requires more power and gas. I bet the lawmakers make a one size fits all legislation that does not make any usage distinctions Minnesotans will be up in arms if electric snowmobiles are mandated.

#23 I was talking to a friend at a church meeting this morning. On the way there she had passed a lady with the hood up on her car. Friend stopped and found out lady was out of gas. So they went to gast station and she had to pay almost $14 for a gas can (in addition to gas) and then couldn't figure how to get the gas out of the gas can. Finally a cop stopped and helped them. Life used to be so simple.....and it worked okay.

The first thing you do with a Government approved gas can is to throw away that Government approved spout, find a lid that fits it and buy a funnel. P.S. It also helps to drill a small hole in the handle to give it some air. A screw works well to cover that hole.

On another site we were discussing snowblowers, and some people with small drives/walks/snow levels were contemplating electric/battery snow blowers. Someone that had just purchased one informed us that the manual states..."Batteries must be kept above 32degrees Fahrenheit, any battery that is exposed to lower temps must be discarded(in a hazardous materials manner) then replaced, due to explosion/Fire risks. Gotta tell ya...anytime I EVER need a snowblower it WILL be exposed to temps below 32 degrees.

The Dems here in MN are just punch-drunk with power. They're rushing all their libtopia ideas through both houses of legislature, allowing very limited debate or input by Republicans. They're very proud that their first law this year was to make MN the most liberal place for abortion in the country (Repubs offered about 50 amendments to moderate the extreme nature of the bill and every one got shot down) and the Dem gov gleefully signed the legislation into law. I'm hoping that once again the devil will overplay his hand and common sense people will see the wickedness, deceit, and nonsense spewed by the Demon-crat Party. Minnesota is full of wonderful people and great scenery --- but not in the Twin Cities. Most of the rest of the state tries to avoid even driving near them.

I live in a small town in Wisconsin, very near the Minnesota border. I wish we could close that border! Just today I was pumping gas at a convenience store in town when an suv with Minnesota plates pulled up to the pumps next to me. There were at least five open parking spaces directly in front of the store, but this guy blocked a pump and walked inside for shopping. I doubt that he was going to get gas after he came out because the fill cap was on the other side of his car. (Maybe he's too stupid to remember which side is which?) This kind of self-centered, inconsiderate arrogance is common among most people that I see or meet from Minnesota (at least near the twin cities). I hope they get what they've voted for good and hard when their economy tanks. And don't come over here looking for help.

A measure the Federal Reserve watches closely to gauge inflation rose more than expected in January, indicating the central bank has more work to do to bring down prices. The personal consumption expenditures price index excluding food and energy increased 0.6% for the month, and was up 4.7% from a year ago, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Wall Street had been expecting respective readings of 0.5% and 4.4%. The core PCE gains were 0.4% and 4.6% in December. Including the volatile food and energy components, headline inflation increased 0.6% and 5.4% respectively, compared to 0.2% and 5.3% in December.

Ukraine's insistence on reasserting control over the annexed Crimean Peninsula is controversial for United States citizens, exclusive polling for Newsweek has revealed. Throughout the past year, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly committed to "liberating" Crimea from Russian control. The peninsula was illegally annexed by Moscow back in 2014. "Crimea is our land, our territory," Zelensky said in January. "It is our sea and our mountains. Give us your weapons—we will return what is ours." His words coincided with reports that the Biden administration was warming up to the idea of supporting Kyiv in its goal of retaking Crimea.

President Joe Biden fumbled around his words as he tried to explain why he still has no plans to visit East Palestine after a toxic train derailment devastated the small Ohio community.  As he was leaving the White House on Friday to head to his Wilmington, Delaware residence, a reporter asked Biden if he was going to travel to East Palestine after his administration had been accused of ignoring the city's plight. The president answered, 'At this point, I'm not,' but then he appeared confused and strained as he tried to explain himself.  'I did a whole video, I mean, um,

President Joe Biden said Friday on ABC’s “World News Tonight” that his classified documents case was “totally different” from former President Donald Trump’s. Partial transcript as follows: DAVID MUIR: There are many who will understand why you can’t comment while your lawyers are saying not to comment. They also saw you, though, comment on former President Trump. And so at the very least– BIDEN: Because look here’s they were showing they wish you guys were showing on television things lying on the ground and said top secret national, you know, code word. And the difference is every single solitary thing I’ve been asked to do, I’ve

Better late than never! President Joe Biden on Friday directed federal agencies to go door-to-door in East Palestine, Ohio, starting Saturday, to check on families affected by the toxic train derailment. Under Biden’s order, teams from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Environmental Protection Agency and Federal Emergency Management Agency will visit homes.  Workers will ask how residents are doing, see what they need and connect them with appropriate resources from government and nonprofit organizations, the White House said. The 'walk teams' are modeled on similar teams following hurricanes and other natural disasters.

Attorney Andrew McCarthy said Emily Kohrs, the forewoman of a special grand jury as part of the Georgia criminal probe into former President Trump, may have dealt "a terrible blow" to prosecutors with her unusual media tour this week. In a pair of appearances on CNN and NBC News, Kohrs appeared to strongly hint that Trump was among those recommended for criminal charges while laughing, joking and making animated facial expressions that seemed to provide answers she knew she shouldn't be offering. McCarthy, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, believes any "fair-mind lawyer" would object to her behavior. "This is a terrible thing. She basically

Sometimes, I listen to Joe Biden–and all I can think is: he is one weird dude. He was asked on Friday if he would be visiting the site of the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, and his response was bizarre. He said he did a “whole video,” and he couldn’t remember that it was a “Zoom” video. “Zoom. All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, ‘Who’s Zoomin’ Who?'” Biden babbled. Yikes. At this point, he’s just not a serious person; he seems completely out of it. You have a disaster in East Palestine, and that’s how he’s responding?

During an interview with Joe Biden that aired on Friday, ABC’s David Muir asked Joe Biden if he would be running again. He said Muir should ask Jill Biden, referencing comments Jill Biden made earlier in the day during her visit to Africa. It was sort of a joke. But it also told you who is running the show here. When it comes to things, she’s the handler. Jill got snippy with the interviewer, the AP’s Darlene Superville, for even daring to ask the question, as though it was already a settled thing. “How many times does he have to say it for you to believe it?” Jill said
