Small engines may face extinction
Gas-powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers may soon be on the California endangered species list. The Legislature has approved a bill prohibiting the sale of new such equipment including small off-road engines primarily found in outdoor power devices. Lawmakers were told those engines emit smog-forming pollutants at levels that are projected to outpace those from passenger cars. Workers who breathe exhaust from those engines face health risks, including asthma, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. (INT)
