It is for your own good!

Sometimes the powers that be have to make people do things that they don't want to do.  Like...seat belts.  And motorcycle helmets.  Well, that one didn't go over so well.  Don't get me started.  One of the more recent actions that will affect all of us is the phasing out of incandescent light bulbs. 
We already use CFL's but recently took advantage of Duke's free offer. 

Even if you aren't on Duke energy, you might refer to the website to learn more about why CFLs are a good idea.  After all, it is for your own good! (And isn't free an enticing word?)

Very interesting! I will check that out.

What's this you wrote on Jayme's blog about us having the worst winter in history? At this least this year I live in an insulated house so my survival is almost guaranteed!

What about the terrible toxin in the bulb known as mercury that spills out if the bulb breaks? Is that good for all of us? CFL's also interfere with radio and computer frequencies so I wonder if they interfere with our health. Saving energy is being pushed too fast. Natural gas harvesting using fracking that will supply us energy but destroy our drinking water supply is a huge one to consider. We need to discover a whole different type of energy to save the world for the future and since the economy takes priority over everything that won't happen any time soon.
