BULB Act & How to use a CFL

Posted: July 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007  hopefuly to be repealed..

Thankfully, the House is finally making moves to repeal this – at best, ill-thought-out; at worst, you-will-go-green-and-you-will-like-it – law. On Monday, expect to see a vote on the Better Use of Lightbulbs (BULB) Act, meant to reverse the 2007 law’s provision on banning incandescents.

But you must see the cute video with this.. (and the best use for an Al Gore book ever)..

    I hate those go@ *amned corkscrewy things. Hate, hate, hate….

    They do not provide enough light to needlepoint to. They give me a headache (really). they are expensive. They break.

    And, if there is mercury in the bloody things, and all of the bloody things will eventually be thrown away – ummmm, I realize that I am a “stupid denier”, but wouldn’t lots of mercury in a land fill be a problem (and if not, why can’t I have to good ole’ fashioned thermometer back?)

      No question the cfl bulbs are the result of short-sighted government involvment.. shock-shock. So guess if this is not repealed, we will be restricted to daylight, outdoor viewing of things?

    Dam*. The bulb bill failed to pass, thanks to my idiotic Congressman and his ilk.

    Of course, it was a no brainer that it would fail. After all, the actual lightbulbs are cheaper, produced in the USA, and didn’t have mercury in them. Much better to force everyone to buy the much more expensive, foreign made, mercury laden, ugly, bulbs that don’t fit in many existing light fixtures, resulting in more thrown away perfectly good items and greater expenditure to find fixtures that fit the stupid lightbulbs… Oh, and the great “topper” is the lightbulbs cause headaches, might be cause cancer if you sit close to the, require extreme cleanup measures when broken, and they don’t even provide enough light to see by….

    Freedom of choice – why is it that a woman is free to choose to kill her baby, but the same woman is not free to choose her own gosh darn lightbulb?
