This web site aims for the complete elimination of leaf blowers from California, and Nation-wide if possible.

There are over three million leaf blowers in California. The majority are gasoline-powered leaf blowers. If growth trends continue, soon there will be over six million leaf blowers in California, at which time, air pollution, water pollution, blown dust, and noise, will be twice as bad as today.

Details (illustrated with trend charts and other data) of the daily dose of pollution and noise visited upon residents of California by over three million leaf blowers are published in a ninety-two-page (including contents and index) manifesto that can be downloaded from this web site.

Manifesto updated 2007 December 13.

The first recipient of this manifesto was Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who pledged to enact sweeping legislation to reduce or eliminate emissions and pollution from California.

Short Tour of Pollution and Noise

For a short tour of the main points of the manifesto, push the button to the left. In the meantime, here are “high-lights“ of the manifesto. Maybe “low-lights“ more appropriately describes the environmental destruction spewed into California cities and towns every day of the year by over three million noise bazookas).

Unburned Fuel Spew Numbers

Every day, those gasoline-powered leaf blowers spew over one-and-a-half million gallons of raw unburned two-stroke fuel into your California air at two hundred miles per hour, or over five-hundred-and-forty million gallons per year.

Cumulative Fuel Spew Numbers

Since the beginning of the gasoline-powered leaf blower and noise-making era in California, those gasoline-powered leaf blowers have spewed eight billion gallons of raw unburned fuel into your environment.

Carbon Dioxide Numbers

Every day, gasoline-powered leaf blowers spew over forty-eight thousand tons of Carbon Dioxide into California air at two hundred miles per hour, or over eighteen million tons per year, contributing to global warming.

Boosted Dust Numbers

Every dry day, leaf blowers boost over ninety thousand tons of dust into your California air at two hundred miles per hour, creating potential health hazards, for over eighteen million tons of dust per year.
That boosted dust potentially contributes to the huge increases in asthma, allergies, and respiratory ailments over the past thirty years.
