According to an article written by the Washington Post, the engines in gas powered leaf blowers emits a number of air pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides and hydrocarbons. Both nitrous oxides and hydrocarbons contribute to smog formation. Hydrocarbons can be carcinogenic and nitrous oxides can cause acid rain. A 2011 test by the company Edmunds revealed that a consumer-grade leaf blower emits more pollutants than a 6,200-pound Ford F-150.  An electric model reduces air pollution and comes from power plants equipped to filter out pollutants.  This among other things is a fraction of the reasons why UTA should ban gas powered leaf blowers and should switch to electric.
