The talking-about-low-energy-light-bulbs trick

Am I the only one to be fed up with the endless talismanic intonation that we should all be using low-energy lightbulbs? If the government were serious about leading on environmental issues, it would make low-energy lightbulbs compulsory and BAN high-energy lightbulbs ... rather than trying to foist the responsibility and the blame onto the rest of us.

Surely low energy lightbulbs are like nuclear power was 40 years ago. They seem on the surface like the perfect solution but try and dispose them and you have a great environmental problem indeed, in this case with the mercury. While this is a step in the right direction, I would like to see LEDs in the mainstream soon.

Yes; LEDs are certainly a wave of the future. They will replace halogen. See my recent _Indy_ letter, under 'Revolt against low-energy lights': http://comment.independent.co.uk/letters/article3041081.ece
