California Assemblyman Lloyd Levin has introduced the “How Many Legislators Does it Take to Change a  Lightbulb Act” which will ban the use of incandescent lightbulbs by 2012.  I am not making this up–read it for yourself @ http://www.taunton.com/finehomebuilding/how-to/cross-section/fluorescent-bulb-legislation.aspx.

Great.  Now we all be forced to use fluorescent lights.  

If you should have the misfortune of dropping one of this squiggly bulbs, stop!  Evacuate your house immediately.  Go find a computer and click on http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2008/02/26/what_to_do_when_compact_fluorescents_crack/

Have we lost all manner of reason in this country?  Is this really going to save the planet?   Is this good for humans?
