    LOL! Because a half century without an energy policy has served us so well up to now!

    Not at all, and here it is:

    "The new products include pear-shaped, mercury-free EcoVantage halogens by Philips Lighting that produce the same warm light of old-fashioned bulbs (two-packs, in varying wattage, cost about $3 at The Home Depot)"
    On Earth Day, more green light bulbs

    What exactly is your point?

    I don't see any harm from not having bans on products that people were rejecting anyway.

    If losing freedom means using a more efficient light bulb instead of whale blubber to light our homes, I would have to agree with you there!

    There is no ban on incandescent bulbs, I just provided a link to them above.

    Nope, incandescents are still allowed. Higher energy efficiencies are now required that is all, just like with the reduced tailpipe emissions standards.

    Higher energy efficiencies are impossible with the old tech. They are banned. Efficiency standards always ban technology in favor of new technology. That is the entire purpose of the practice.

    So you mean I don't have the "freedom" to burn whale blubber anymore? Oh the tragedy!
