USA Today had an opinion piece on the fears that rescinding the ban on incandescent lamps was going to send us back into the dark ages of energy waste. This type of accusation once again points to our inconsistent point of view of what is good, better and best in any choice.
Anyone who has tried LED lamps is generally happy. They produce beautiful light at markedly lower costs and virtually eliminate the replacement hassles since they last so long. That is not always true with more efficient methods… and this is where the hypocrisy between lights and speed limits comes into clear focus.
Pick the right battles please. There are situations where incandescent lamps are still better alternatives at this time anyway. Let it rest.
