Upset about Big Brother's Ban on Incandescent Bulbs? Buy a Heatball!
American Thinker ^ | December 30, 2011 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 12/30/2011 8:40:21 AM PST by Paladins Prayer

This is just too good.

Many of you know that in a few days the federal ban on conventional incandescent light bulbs will go into effect. And while House Republicans included a provision in a recent spending bill that will block funding for the ban's enforcement, it's said that it will have little effect; manufacturers have prepared for the new standards and will no doubt abide by the law. So does this mean we'll be forced to buy more expensive LED (light emitting diode) or CFL (compact fluorescent light) bulbs, the latter being those squiggly things said to be loaded with mercury? Not if we follow the lead of German businessman Siegfried Rotthaeuser.

After the European Union banned conventional incandescent bulbs, Rotthaeuser's entrepreneurial spirit was sparked. He started selling another product: heatballs.

However, the ban gave GE all the reason they needed to shutter an incandescent bulb factory and move it to China.

How does the Obama account for those jobs? Doesn’t seem they were saved or created... here.

In all fairness, they couldn’t reverse the law. That would have required both houses to pass the repeal (and the Senate is controlled by Demonrats) and Obama’s signature or both Houses to pass the repeal by a two-thirds margin (see first parenthetical statement).

It’s really not fair to blame Republicans for doing the best they can. If we don’t like it, we need to get our fellow Amerikans to give the GOP veto-proof majorities.

The deployment of light bulbs as heat balls is at least as old as my boyhood. I remember well that our automobile was parked in a non-enclosed car-shed alongside the house in Amarillo, Texas, where winter night-time temperatures would often drop into the teens and lower. How to keep the car engine warm enough to start on the freezing morning after sitting all night in such temperatures?

Easy. Dad would place a drop-light -- turned on, of course -- on top of the engine, then carefully lower the hood so that the shining droplight was contained under the hood, atop the engine. The bulb wattage was, as I recall, 100 watts.

Next morning, the car would start as if the temps had dropped only into the 30s.

I've done the same with a couple of old buildings (one constructed in 1887) on nights when the temps were low enough to freeze the pipes under the sink. Like Dad with the car, I put incandescent lamps (small bedside lamps) under the sinks, turned on of course,and closed the doors covering the under-sink space. The 100 watt incandescent bulbs kept everything under the sink cozy and warm enough to avoid freezing pipes.

This is wonderful! Kudos to Herr Rotthaeuser for his thinking and action to back it up. I love his "12 Heatball Theses" (I wonder if he nailed these to the door of the EU in Brussels):

12 Heatball Theses

  1. Heatball is the enlightened view of what is essential
  2. Heatball is the warmth that has not been recognised for decades
  3. Heatball is the reversal of disaffected thinking
  4. Heatball has become satire through the absurdity of reality
  5. Heatball is like Hamlet, who presents a mirror to his cynical stepfather
  6. Heatball is easy to understand and difficult to fight, and gets stronger through arbitrariness and harassment
  7. Heatball is an electrical resistance against the destruction of cultural goods
  8. Heatball is an image for the dilemma of culture to combine knowledge and emotions
  9. Heatball is an Art Action and connects the people of Europe with warmth
  10. Heatball is the artistic answer to a product of politics
  11. Heatball is unbureaucratic help for the rain forest from people for humanity
  12. Heatball is free from mercury, independent from lobbyists,and a symbol of free mind

These heatballs are very efficient heaters within the house. As efficient as an electric heater/furnace. Even the visible light warms those objects it hits.

Also, toasters are light bulbs, but not very good ones. I’ve got one of these 1000 W bulbs in the kitchen. On dark nights, you can read by the weak orange glow between toast or bagels. Abe Lincoln would have enjoyed one of these as he studied his law books.

(Actually, electric heating is pretty bad. Since electric generating plants are roughly 50% efficient, you have already lost half of the energy released by the fuel. About half the energy goes out the stack at the plant. With gas or oil heat, you burn the fuel right there in your house with much less loss.)

Just like Prohibition, these ridiculous government bans on products people want will create a black market or a new opportunity for organized crime. I expect that guys in back alleys will soon be hawking 100W incandescent bulbs, high flow toilets and cigarettes from unmarked trucks.

This incandescent light bulb ban is a fine example of anarcho-tyranny. Anarcho-tyranny means the Gov’t harrases and burdens you with thousands of idiotic laws while not enforcing the important laws such as enforcmnet on our Mexican border and ejecting illegal immigrants. Reentry after being deported is a felony. This is never enforced

Anarcho-tyranny is when you have state Gov’ts making .08 blood alcohol a drunk driving offense. Also when police harass the middle class with inane traffic tickets while never exerting themselves to bust drug dealers

There I agree with you. In certain respects, GW Bush wholly deserved his reputation as a moron.

However, the issue here is the current Republicans, many of whom are Tea Party members. They’re not any more responsible for Mr. Mush’s idiocy than you are.

Look for a future mandate requiring new electrical installations to have receptacles that don’t allow traditional bulbs to be screwed in.

We just tried to switch out the light fixtures on our ceiling fans. The news ones, indeed, have bulb recepticles that will not allow screw in light bulbs. We’ll be looking for some backroads hardware store that still has the regular type on thier shelves.

The votes were in the House. They voted on it. But Boehner made sure it was one of those rare, rare votes in the House which required a super majority.

There is but one reason he would allow that vote to die because of a procedural tactic not used in the House for years...

That was the day he showed his true colors for anyone watching. He sold out over a damned incandescent light bulb.

To this day, I have yet to hear anyone call him on it, except for those of us on FR.

George Bush's Legacy:

EPA Instructions: What to Do if a CFL Breaks in Your Home

- Cleanup instructions

- Why is it important to clean up a broken CFL properly?

- What if I can't follow all the recommended steps? or I cleaned up a CFL but didn't do it properly?

Recommended steps:

Before cleanup:

1.Have people and pets leave the room, and avoid the breakage area on the way out.

2.Open a window or door to the outdoors and leave the room for 5-10 minutes.

3.Shut off the central forced-air heating/air conditioning (H&AC) system, if you have one.

4.Collect materials you will need to clean up the broken bulb: Stiff paper or cardboard Sticky tape (e.g., duct tape) Damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes (for hard surfaces) Glass jar with a metal lid (such as a canning jar) or a sealable plastic bag(s)

Cleanup Steps for Hard Surfaces

1.Carefully scoop up glass fragments and powder using stiff paper or cardboard and place debris and paper/cardboard in a glass jar with a metal lid. If a glass jar is not available, use a sealable plastic bag. (NOTE: Since a plastic bag will not prevent the mercury vapor from escaping, remove the plastic bag(s) from the home after cleanup.)

2.Use sticky tape, such as duct tape, to pick up any remaining small glass fragments and powder. Place the used tape in the glass jar or plastic bag.

3.Wipe the area clean with damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes. Place the towels in the glass jar or plastic bag.

4.Vacuuming of hard surfaces during cleanup is not recommended unless broken glass remains after all other cleanup steps have been taken. [NOTE: It is possible that vacuuming could spread mercury-containing powder or mercury vapor, although available information on this problem is limited.] If vacuuming is needed to ensure removal of all broken glass, keep the following tips in mind: Keep a window or door to the outdoors open; Vacuum the area where the bulb was broken using the vacuum hose, if available; and Remove the vacuum bag (or empty and wipe the canister) and seal the bag/vacuum debris, and any materials used to clean the vacuum, in a plastic bag.

5.Promptly place all bulb debris and cleanup materials, including vacuum cleaner bags, outdoors in a trash container or protected area until materials can be disposed of properly. Check with your local or state government about disposal requirements in your area. Some states and communities require fluorescent bulbs (broken or unbroken) be taken to a local recycling center.

6.Wash your hands with soap and water after disposing of the jars or plastic bags containing bulb debris and cleanup materials.

7.Continue to air out the room where the bulb was broken and leave the H&AC system shut off, as practical, for several hours.

Cleanup Steps for Carpeting or Rugs

1.Carefully scoop up glass fragments and powder using stiff paper or cardboard and place debris and paper/cardboard in a glass jar with a metal lid. If a glass jar is not available, use a sealable plastic bag. (NOTE: Since a plastic bag will not prevent the mercury vapor from escaping, remove the plastic bag(s) from the home after cleanup.)

2.Use sticky tape, such as duct tape, to pick up any remaining small glass fragments and powder. Place the used tape in the glass jar or plastic bag.

3.Vacuuming of carpeting or rugs during cleanup is not recommended unless broken glass remains after all other cleanup steps have been taken. [NOTE: It is possible that vacuuming could spread mercury-containing powder or mercury vapor, although available information on this problem is limited.] If vacuuming is needed to ensure removal of all broken glass, keep the following tips in mind: Keep a window or door to the outdoors open; Vacuum the area where the bulb was broken using the vacuum hose, if available, and Remove the vacuum bag (or empty and wipe the canister) and seal the bag/vacuum debris, and any materials used to clean the vacuum, in a plastic bag.

4.Promptly place all bulb debris and cleanup materials, including vacuum cleaner bags, outdoors in a trash container or protected area until materials can be disposed of properly. Check with your local or state government about disposal requirements in your area. Some states and communities require fluorescent bulbs (broken or unbroken) be taken to a local recycling center.

5.Wash your hands with soap and water after disposing of the jars or plastic bags containing bulb debris and cleanup materials.

6.Continue to air out the room where the bulb was broken and leave the H&AC system shut off, as practical, for several hours

Future Cleaning of Carpeting or Rugs: Air Out the Room During and After Vacuuming

1.The next several times you vacuum the rug or carpet, shut off the H&AC system if you have one, close the doors to other rooms, and open a window or door to the outside before vacuuming. Change the vacuum bag after each use in this area.

2.After vacuuming is completed, keep the H&AC system shut off and the window or door to the outside open, as practical, for several hours.

Why is it important to clean up a broken CFL properly?

CFLs and other fluorescent light bulbs contain a small amount of mercury sealed within the glass tubing. When a fluorescent bulb breaks in your home, some of this mercury is released as mercury vapor. To minimize exposure to mercury vapor, EPA recommends that residents follow the cleanup and disposal steps described on this page.

What if I can't follow all the recommended steps? or I cleaned up a CFL but didn't do it properly?

Don't be alarmed; these steps are only precautions that reflect best practices for cleaning up a broken CFL. Keep in mind that CFLs contain a very small amount of mercury -- less than 1/100th of the amount in a mercury thermometer.

However, if you are concerned about the risk to your health from a potential exposure to mercury, consult your physician.

I’m afraid that means US.

The Republicans had a majority in both house and the presidency and totally blew the opportunity to get the ship back on a course for freedom and prosperity.

Bush was one of the worst Republican presidents in history because he squandered everything else while fixated on getting even with Saddam Hussein.

Some readers may also be aware of the most current update to the “incandescent legislation”; that Congress passed a rider to the recent spending bill that would not fund the enforcement of the “ban” on 100 watt incandescents.

I’ve been in touch with several manufacturers and importers who have stated they intend to stay the course and follow the guidelines of the original legislation passed in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Bottom line appears to be that the standard 100 watt bulbs will become increasingly difficult to find since only fringe producers will be importing the bulbs as we move into 2012.

There are still several viable options including the new halogen types, CFLs and emerging LEDs. Each brings distinct advantages and disadvantages but there should be ample choices to fit just about any commercial or residential need. Philips in particular has led the way in the development of LED products but has also developed a line of halogen bulbs (EcoVantage) that very closely emulate the light produced by incandescents while using 28% less energy.

The industry is still playing catch-up with the creation of a viable infrastructure for recycling CFLs. So far a handful of retailers are accepting spent CFLs in their stores while the online retail community is offering box recycling programs that enable CFL users to safely dispose (recycle) their bulbs.

While government intervention into the limitation of our bulb choices remains a hot topic, it’s safe to say that our homes and businesses will still have enough bulb options to satisfy most if not all of us.
