Those “energy efficient” bulbs are filled with mercury and will poison our landfills and water.....It will cost more and use way more energy in the end-— to clean up all the hazardous waste that is in those bulbs coming from China. We will be poisoning our children if those bulbs break inside the house and the cr*p gets into landfills and water supplies....think of the cost of having hazardous waste specialists come into your house.
Marxists are trying to destroy this country with insane laws and regulations.
“Those energy efficient bulbs are filled with mercury and will poison our landfills and water”
They probably already are. I have two bulbs sitting in my garage that need to be disposed. So tempting to just throw them in the garbage, and I’m sure less scrupulous people than me have en masse. I’ve heard Home Depot is a disposal spot, but I refuse to darken their excessively gay friendly door.
In war, If the enemy comes up with a fast fighter, we come up with a faster one. If the enemy comes up with a quiet sub, we come up with a quieter stealthier sub. If the enemy comes up with a big gun, we come up with an even bigger gun. However, when the enemy figures out how to get elected officials to pass society-killing laws, we are stymied and defenseless. We really need to figure out how, while still keeping our republic and constitution intact, to fight the internal battles - if we lose, we lose it all, just as if the enemy has the fastest fighter, stealthiest sub or biggest gun.
"Filled" is a bit misleading. CFLs and the older fluorescent tubes that are found in just about every office building, school, and store in the country both contain mercury. Approximately 5 milligrams.
I will add that the curly bulbs do NOT last as long as they are supposed to. I’ve had to replace several after just one year, and they were in light fixtures which were barely used a total of 20 minutes daily.
