    Can't speak for everyone, but I do. As I've said before, if everyone used as little energy as I use, we would not have a global warming crisis.

    If you had a heart problem, would you go with the 97% of experts that said you needed an operation, or the 3% who said it was no problem, you'll be just fine?
    Depends -- how many of the 97% are getting big money to say it. I had two doctors in an emergency room tell me I had an acute appendicitis... I didn't have a temperature, I wasn't puking, my white blood cell count wasn't elevated but they wanted to operate anyway. I walked out of the hospital with my appendix and that was in 1993... I still have it today. So 100% of the doctors told me I needed an operation....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    OK, you believe scientists and doctors are all conspired against you. Got it!

    Especially if you ignore the Constitution. Good point!

    So you admit your statement was incorrect. Thanks.

    Lets just cut to the chase. Nobody actually cares that they get to use the old janky lightbulbs. This whole thing is just an excuse for Republicans to go around ranting about how they don't believe in global warming/science.

    The passive solar house I built in 1984 that has used 60% less energy than average for each year since, I use no air-conditioning, I walk to work, and for occasional long distance travel I have used a car that gets at least 50 mpg since 2001, I organically grow most of my own food, and I use high efficiency stove, refrigeratory, hot water heater, dryer, and lightbulbs.

    Soon I will have my new solar panels hooked up which will produce 1.5 kw of power and they will pay for themselves in 7 years.

    How does that compare with how energy efficient you are???
