NO Ban on Light Bulbs!

November 3, 2011
American Policy Center

Sledgehammer Action Alert:

Your Senators and Representatives in Congress need to hear from you today.

Unless Congress takes action to repeal the so-called “energy efficiency standards” before January 1, 2012, it will be illegal to buy incandescent light bulbs.

The replacement “green” bulbs are more expensive and give off a harsher light.

Above all, there is no reason to force Americans to buy the bulbs. This is part of the Agenda 21 controls over energy use. It’s a false premise.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Thank you for this Harold!

    Apart from affecting people’s product choice,
    the actual switchover savings are not that great anyway =
    less than 1% of overall energy use, and 1-2% grid electricity is saved
    from banning the simple incandescent bulbs,
    as shown by USA Dept of Energy and other official information ( )
    with alternative and much more meaningful ways to save energy in
    generation, distribution or consumption.

    I mean its a man, most likely, who dreamed up this crazy rule, that if we used incadescent light bulbs, it would help clean up the environment. Only someone working under obama, could dream up a fiasco regulation, such as this. I suppose he went to Romper STreet Ivy League School lol!!!

    The new light bulbs are hazardous and have mercury on them, YOu have to call the mob squad to clean up the debris from a broken bulb, which can cost up to 2,000$. I dont know of anyone living around me, who would pay that amount of money to have a light bulb mishap cleaned up. Most likely, they will just clean it up, put it in a separate bag and throw it away. Im not planning to use those light bulbs anytime soon, as they look very ugly and do not give off a warm glow. Its probably some man, who never cleans house, and had to come up with something he had done, to justify his job position, working under Obama. These new light bulb rule is absolutely insane, and will not do any good, in the scheme of things.
