OKAY, I’M A HUGE FAN OF COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHTS. See:


One Billion Bulbs Instapundit Bulbs Change Statistics

But that said, the proposal to ban incandescent bulbs nationwide is idiotic. The technology isn’t advanced enough, the burden on the poor is nontrivial, it will remove CFL technology from the competitive pressure of having to be better than the mature technology of incandescent bulbs, and it’s a lame, nanny-state approach. It’s one thing for me to experiment with them, and encourage my readers to do so. It’s quite another to use force to limit people’s choices.
