light bulb ban

Did you know that beginning this year Australia and Denmark have banned incandescent light bulbs? And the EU placed heavy restrictions on the sale of incandescent light bulbs back in September. In December 2007, the United States Congress passed a bill that bans incandescent light bulbs in 2014. I never heard of any of this until I came across a silly sculpture covering this topic on a design site.

I’m going to have to stock up. I absolutely hate the light the compact fluorescent bulbs give off. Maybe I should just stock up on halogen before they ban those too. UGH

I don’t really have a strong preference in terms of lighting, but the old incandescent bulbs are just big energy hogs. And most of that energy is given off as heat rather than light.
