Ban the Bulb Dimming?


How many Government Ministers
does it take to fit a CFL light bulb?

December last year I wrote a post - prematurely congratulating the government on bringing in a ban on the sale of incandescent bulbs. It now begins to look like the plan is getting a major "watering down". Will we see the old bulbs banned in the next 6 months ??? I begin to doubt it.

Look guys (members of the Irish Government) - there is more than one way to peel an apple!!! If the stupid EU gets in the way of this plan - why not just treble the VAT on incandescent bulbs. And then give away 20 million or so CFL bulbs divided between every household in Ireland. It will save lots of money and energy, and carbon credits etc. in the long run.
