The GOP’s hatred of green energy reminds me of their hatred for LED bulbs.

    Perhaps if the manufacturers called them by their technical name, mercury vapor lamp (MVL), instead of calling them compact fluorescent lights (CFL), no consumers would be confused about what they contain.

    I agree, my smart bulbs cost $30-$50 apiece, in my kitchen all the lights were controlled be two switches, now I can control each light individually. I can adjust the brightness, the type of light, time they go on or off. All controlled by an app. We have saved a lot of money and it’s convenient.

    LED bulbs are everywhere. But not because people want them.

    I can touch mine as well, yet when I use it with no incandescent my tiny studio feels like a sauna within four hours...only baking a pie in the oven turns this place into heatstroke city faster. Using only incandescent the temperature raises only a few degrees within four hours, despite the bulbs being too hot to touch. Weird but true.

    Once again one of our far left Trolls tries to re-write history.

    As has been posted here already, it was the CFL bulbs and the banning of 100-watt incandescents and then others that caused the ruckus and rightfully so! Today they are being discontinued after we were wrongly forced by the Greenies to put them in our houses and businesses.

    You were wrong back then deanrd and you are wrong again. Step up and admit the obvious!

    I've never seen any of what you claim, but let's be honest here, no one has ever seen any of what claim, ever.

    He gets distracted by the new pages coming out of the fax machine. He's required to post any new ones within two hours or he gets a "visit".
