    Some of those are nice, and you can get them cheaper. Check Amazon. The idea of almost never replacing a lightbulb is nice.

    Tyranny comes. Flush toilets. Light bulbs. Bureaucrats who make rule and regulations to damage this economy all in the name of what? A fraud? A lie. Man-caused global warming, er, cooling, er change?

    At some point it will be time to drag out the pitchforks and clean the stables.

    Let me repeat this: they are not illegal, except maybe in Cali, but since your source is a propaganda piece, I would not even bet on that. Getting your news from opinion pieces is foolish.
    Really? Here is the ban California Incandescent Light Bulb Ban Takes Effect
    California's Incandescent Bulb Ban Begins - Environment - GOOD

    [GOOGLE]california incandescent light bulb ban - Google Search[/GOOGLE]

    It seems to be a dazzling profusion of choice. But, at least in California, where I live, this plenitude no longer includes what most shoppers want: an inexpensive, plain-vanilla 100-watt incandescent bulb. Selling them is now illegal here.

    up. early ones tended to get too hot and blow, making them expensive and worthless at the same time. Most newer technology LED lights will last for 20 years, use way less energy, and produce negligible heat when compared to incandescent.

    Grab yer noodle, Noodle...

    from your article...
    As of this past Saturday, January 1, 2011, standard 100-watt incandescent light bulbs are being phased off of California store shelves. Bulbs that were manufactured before January 1 or already on store shelves can still be legally sold and purchased, but no more of the low-tech, energy sucking bulbs can be brought to market in California.
    The California Energy Commission is quick to claim that this is not a "ban" on incandescent bulbs, but rather a new energy efficiency standard. In fact, it's the same standard that was passed by Congress and signed into federal law by George W. Bush, which will go into effect on January 1, 2012. As is so often the case, California legislators decided to get ahead of the rest of the nation.

    Re: Incandecent Bulbs Made Illegal

    Read your damn sources past the headlines. From just the first:

    Manufacturers will no longer make the traditional 100-watt bulb and stores will eventually sell out of current supplies. Consumers will have to choose from more efficient bulbs that use no more than 72 watts, including halogen incandescents, compact fluorescents and light-emitting diode, or LED, bulbs
    Hey look, even in Cali you can still buy incandescent light bulbs, just like I said. Reading sources is gud.

    I don't really care about light bulb rules and regulations.
