    Statists who crave control voted for it. If a busybody can tell you what you can and cannot buy then you are in a tyrannical situation. I cannot help you. Your blindness is complete.

    There shouldn't be a complete ban on the old school 100w bulbs, they are useful for hot boxes.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's one of those things, no matter how small and arbitrary to you, it does effect someone negatively.

    The common usage of more energy efficient bulbs is already underway, there really is no need for this ban.

    I switched out all the incandescent bulbs for the energy-savers (florescent/LED) years ago at both of my houses. The illumination is the same, they are cooler and consume less energy, and they last much longer.

    Re: Incandecent Bulbs Made Illegal

    The lamps I use in my apartment use 20 W per hour. I have about 10 of them, and use them about 5 hours per day when we include that I don't all of them at the same time. Hence I use 31KW per month on lightning.

    If I switched to Incandecent Bulbs I would have to use 100W bulbs to get the same lightning. That is 155KW. Instead of using 100-140KW per month, I would be using 200 - 300KW per month. I wouldn't care if they banned them here, because I would never use them.

    However, I don't see the point of banning inefficient incandecent bulbs. Some people may need it, if they for instance need a cheap heating source. A better decision would be to inform the customer. For instance at all packages they have to inform luminosity, KW rating and life span.

    I don't care in the slightest. I switched to compact fluorescents a few years ago and have no intention of ever switching back.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Do you see the difference between you having a choice to make and a government busybody telling you that you must purchase "this" and won't be allowed an longer to purchase "that" all based on ideology? See how far you get if your choice is not approved by a government busybody. Start with a real flush toilet. Try to get something in the 6 gallons per flush range. Why do we allow this?
