Let the Lights Shine

In an effort to decrease overall power use, Australia has enacted new effency standards that would essentially outlaw incandescent light bulbs. California has a similar proposal that would specifically outlaw incandescent bulbs, but they may want to rethink the bill to address efficiency rather than specific products because GE has announced incandescent bulbs that rival the power savings of fluorescent lamps. Supposedly, they will cost less too. That would make me happy, as I much prefer the light from an incandescent bulb to that of a fluorescent one. (I have both in my house.)
