As it turns out, CFLs have their problems as well, and in fact may be dangerous if they are broken or are not properly discarded, and can release harmful mercury into landfills and watersheds. Oh, good...
We have turned our cities into a ghastly shade of orange with the sodium vapour street lights, and now we will be turning our homes into fluorescent hell. What effect will this have on us psychologically? Canada lives in near darkness for much of the year. Our daylight hours are short, and we rely on artificial light. Light has a huge influence on our psychological well-being. Orange cities, fluorescent homes ~~ how long will it be before we go stark raving mad?
Apparently folks have been hoarding the traditional incandescent light bulbs, and I'm one of those folks. Every time I go into a supermarket, a drug store or a hardware store, I load up my cart.
I believe we have a say in how much of our standard of living is dictated to us. This draconian law of telling us we can no longer use incandescent light bulbs is going too far. Not enough research has been done on the effects of CFLs on people and their home environment.
I'm off shopping today, folks. If you see a woman carrying a huge tote bag of light bulbs, stop and say hello.
