A few days ago Congress and the President passed into law a new energy bill. Inside this new energy bill is a provision to kill off the incandescent light bulb within the next 4 to 12 years. Its very sad news. They want to replace our 100 watt friend with ugly twisty CFL bulbs that are supposed to be better for the environment. Too bad for us, each one of those Polar Bear saving bulbs, have poisonous Hg(mercury) in them. I guess its OK for people to pay the consequences, as long as the earth is safe.
These feel-good dim bulbs give you crappy lighting, don’t live up to their longevity promises, and are a pain in the neck to dispose of–but they sure make enviro-nitwits and Big Greenie water-carriers feel good about themselves.
What happened to keeping government out of our bedroom? And our bathroom? And our utility closets?

Too bad for me I live in California, and will probably be one of the first to have to pay for this.
