Get a grip dude. I haven’t been a teenager in decades ... I didn’t say I still do this.

You missed my point. Florescent lights have been around a very long time. Why has this controversy only started with the compact ones?

And by the way ... I turn in my bulbs to Lowe’s when they burn out. They take them for free.

This is not controversy. And it did not start with The stupid CFL which are A complete and unmitigated disaster. People have been warning about the tubes since the 1980s. They have been ignored and now I am taking up the banner as a chemical engineer who understands the horror this is inflicting on the world that no one can see taste or feel

The sooner we stop this the sooner we stop millions of people a day from being irreversibly poisoned

It was simply the GREED of the MERCURY PURVEYORS who said.

’ hey let’s get our mercury lamps into every home now !’

Around 1994. Then they paid the bureaucrats and the global warming fools to pick up the banner For the last 20 yrs. it’s ongoing

Save the planet. Install CFLs they said

Now these highly dangerous noxious and toxic lamps are in every none

Because of this now everyone MUST be aware of the truth

Not just business owners who STILL after 70 years of these things mostly don’t know they are filled with mercury gas

BTW. I have never met Anyone who likes fluorescents. No one

They suck and are terrible light. No decent restaurant would use them
