http://www.newswithviews.com/Peterson/rosalind1.htm There is a movement by many states and localities to ban incandescent light bulbs and convert to total use of fluorescent bulbs (CFL) to save energy. And yet there are few who have read the small print on the tiny inside package label of fluorescent bulbs or heard about the EPAs problems with regard to mercury contamination. What should you know about fluorescent light bulbs? Now anyone that knows me knows that I'm an "enviro-wacko" or "greenie" and I care about saving energy but these bulbs leak mercury into the soil in landfills contaminating water sources. Take from this thread what you will, this is not a debate thread just an informational one. Thanks for reading.
