America’s Incandescent Light Shines Brightly Still, for Now
“It appears that the budget deal in Congress is going to save the incandescent light bulb!
The Edison incandescent light bulb is a signature American invention. It has long symbolized Yankee ingenuity and industrial prowess. It is inexpensive to make, emits a warm, pleasing light and can be thrown away at the end of its life without declaring an environmental emergency.
The victory is only temporary, however. The spending bill Congress has agreed to prevents the Obama administration from spending any money to enforce the ban in 2012. But the ban is still on the books.”
Comment: This is a good development. Now if we can just make those dratted little dark Christmas lights illegal next.
