    Some studies show that when faced with some sort of voluntary energy-reduction program, some conservatives will actually deliberately increase their energy usage. Out of, I don't know, spite or something.

    don't bring the liberals into this....

    as for bulbs, the best way to save energy is to turn them off, whatever kind they are....

    Actually, most want to have the FREEDOM to choose what they do and when they do it. They don't like the idea of the government imposing change on them without their consent.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If people would stay informed and be concerned about conservation perhaps it wouldn't be necessary to have a regulation for energy conservation. But when others ignorance or disregard for conservation negatively affects the rest of the population than it is up to the government to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people, not to mention our energy resources. We've had four people I've noticed just on this thread who think halogen bulbs contain mercury.
