    So bringing Mercury in the house is OK? I don't see the savings they are more expensive and do not last as long as they claim

    Another that is not aware of the thread topic. Halogen bulbs are what the OP refers to and they have no mercury.

    If you have facts that show any years since the early 70's when the US produced more oil than we consumed, you could say that and still be credible.

    But since you've stilll not provided any facts to back up your claim...................

    Peak oil DOES NOT mean we are producing less oil than we consume, it means we used more of the Earth's oil than is left in reserves.

    At least learn what you are talking about.
