The energy-efficient requirements begin next year and by 2014, current conventional light bulbs can no longer be sold.
What kind of impact will this have on consumers? For one conventional light bulbs or incandescent bulbs are virtually becoming extinct. The new energy efficient bulbs last longer and contain mercury in them and are hazardous to your health. So be extremely careful not to break one.
Mercury is a potent neurotoxin, and it's especially dangerous for children and fetuses.
Most stores will not even let you return them because they have nowhere to store the hazardous materials. So what is happening with all these landfills and dumping grounds filled to capacity with this toxic waste?
And why would the government want hazardous material in your home?
If you can find incandescent light bulbs stock up on them while you can. Our rights as consumers are becoming nonexistent.
