Regular bulbs LAST LONGER than the new "greenie" bulbs too, I know this because I took 3 years of electrical classes. No one here will believe me anyway since I bet 70% of people on here are "Green Commie" and refuse to face the facts. This is all I'm going to say.
I think you are underestimating your fellow forum members.
Green Commie? Is that short for Green Communist?
Can't really follow you there, because I can't see any connection between green and communism.
The first is respect for the planet we live on, the second is a totalitarian regime.
I do think introducing a toxic lamp, to abolish an energy inefficient one, is like putting a thief in jail and letting a serial killer out.
Of course it's better to conserve energy, but until there is no viable alternative for Edison's wonder, we should hold on to it a little longer.
