    Just trying to decide where this forced change places historically. At one point folks in St Louis wanted to continue using coal to heat their homes?

    I understand the urge to fight against Big Brother stepping into our lives.

    At one point though FORCING us to use unleaded gas turned out for the best.

    Same with forcing us not to use coal for heat.

    So are the light bulb protesters like the leaded gas complainers?

    Lower-grade gasolines are still referred to as "unleaded".

    CFL's w/still be called light bulbs.

    Coal will always be just... coal.
