    How to Sell Conservatives on Energy-Efficient Lightbulbs

    The study looked at the choices of 210 consumers, about two-thirds of them women. All were briefed on the benefits of compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs over old-fashioned incandescents.

    When both bulbs were priced the same, shoppers across the political spectrum were uniformly inclined to choose CFL bulbs over incandescents, even those with environmental labels, the study found.

    But when the fluorescent bulb cost more – $1.50 instead of $0.50 for an incandescent – the conservatives who reached for the CFL bulb chose the one without the eco-friendly label.

    "The more moderate and conservative participants preferred to bear a long-term financial cost to avoid purchasing an item associated with valuing environmental protections," the study said.
    This is so like a liberal. Let's just look for a second at the energy part of this equation. One of the reasons that energy efficient light bulbs are necessary these days is the shortage of energy. We don't lack the resources to provide more energy, but we prevent ourselves from doing this because we don't want to. So rather than provide more energy, which we easily could, we are forced to accept lighting devices which emit a light that's so noxious to the eyes it's impossible to read by them for any length of time. This is touted as progress, and we're supposed to embrace it, even though it sucks. Now someone has to do a study on exactly how to get a liberal to drill for natural gas. I'm hoping a gun is involved. With a 30 round magazine and all kinds of scary looking stuff on it.

    Compared to what most politicians do, Sanford didn't do a damn thing wrong. There! I talked about Sanford.

    Then i guess by your post... that is so like a conservative to build a straw man rant and not even address the point of the study.

    Yep. Not so much like a conservative, but a lot like me. I like to mirror the responses of the left. Probably indicates a lack of imagination, but since it's a reflection...

    That's just a Dem propaganda meme.

    Then you may need to invest in barf bags. He'll hold that seat as long as he wants.
