Hmmm, I wonder how that worked out for the Injuns.

FWIW, I think the Energy Lobby is too strong to allow CFC's to take over.....


i disagree. i think they're all for it. from my understanding, our energy grid is outdated and being pushed to its absolute limits right now. nobody wants to pay to upgrade (read: rebuild) it until they absolutely HAVE to. CFCs allow for lowering the amount of energy used. the excess will be eaten up by general market growth and they can still jack up their prices and maintain/increase profit margins.

Get that baby growed up quick, you have to have these LB in your house in less than a year. Then you need hazmat type clean up in case one breaks.

But don't worry, mercury never did hurt nobody. Ah environmentalists and their selective enviromentality.

I see CFLs as a stopgap until LEDs are cheaper.
