I’m over trying to change minds that have obviously been made up. I’ve been researching CFLs and incandescent light bulbs for over a year. It has nothing to do with what I’m interested in and I just wanted to stop the freight train I saw coming. But it seems like most people would rather take the government’s word and GE’s propaganda as gospel so what can I do? It’s all here if you want to read the findings.
My final thoughts are that if Thomas Edison’s bulbs have been lit for over 100 years, isn’t that the definition of sustainability? Do you really believe that the screwy light bulbs that come from China, that are considered hazardous material and have to be changed every few months are Green? If so then I can’t talk to a brick wall and really don’t care to anymore. My main concern is that there are no recycling facilities in most places and the hazards of breaking one is not on the packaging. The EPA says if not disposed of properly, they WILL pollute our groundwater, so we can’t say they didn’t warn us.
I guess every civilization has to fall sometime, I just wish we weren’t acting like lemmings running toward polluting our own water. Our parents saw the ozone happening but we don’t look to the future like they did. If you have kids, make sure you keep them far away from these bombs. That’s the last I’m going to say about it. Make your own decision for yourself and your kid’s future. I’ll be stocking up on regular bulbs and praying my neighbors don’t rat me out to the Nazis.
