    Its not opinion that obeying by the news standards involves abandoning the old technology. I'm sure you understand the basic workings of the old tech in relation to the new and how they are fairly different. If not, just google it and will see I'm right.

    The free market is based on liberty and not tyranny. With liberty, people can choose which lightbulb they prefer. With tyranny, the full range of choices are no longer available due to the fact that the few believe the many are too stupid to make their own decision. In this case, the "educated" are too stupid to understand that the people can think for themselves.
    Totally diasagree.
    The people vote in a Congress with a very low approval rating..Thus I do not buy that people can think for themselves.
    Lets get back to this "good education" thing and do it ! But the results will take time, maybe a decade of generations.
    And all this over lightbulbs....lol...

    Why not lightbulbs? You shouldn't just decide to not care when its small and unimportant to the big picture. Any educated person wouldn't decide to just ignore things when they're small. That is what we do in this country though. We call people crazy when they complain on the small issues, and freak out on the large issues like we have merit to speak anymore.

    I believe you just helped make my point for me. You believe that you know better than the people because you believe they cannot think for themselves. Wow! Now that is breathtaking elitism.

    Well, I think you need to take your argument to the city government.

    I believe the energy policies were better prior to the Dept of Energy than after.

    I don't believe I said that I wanted to use whale blubber to light my home. Non sequitur.

    In a couple of years LED will take over it all...its brighter and cheaper to run then anything else out there...they need to perfect the bulbs and get the price down further.

    I'm never giving up my old toilets. If I move, I'm taking them with me.
    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.

    Incandescent light bulbs, like current automobile engines are a genuine waste of energy. In the case of the lights, huge amounts of wattage produce small amounts of light and lots of waste heat to the atmosphere. In the case of automobile engines, put in one gallon of gas and get 25 per cent of its power to the drive wheels and 75 per cent of the power as waste heat to the atmosphere. Global Warming is about waste heat to the atmosphere. Oops, scuse me, that excess heat don't do nothin', radiational cooling, we probably gonna freeze, according to my rePublican guru. Just cause Corporate uses and wastes the most energy doesn't make them responsible. Corporate, can't lay a glove on 'em. Irresponsible, as a legal plan, and don't you forget it!
