Final phaseout of incandescent bulbs coming Jan. 1

It’s lights out for the light bulb.

On Jan. 1 it will become illegal to manufacture or import traditional 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent bulbs, thanks to a 2007 bill that set strict minimum efficiency standards – and effectively outlawed the ordinary bulb.

And like a politician on Election Day, Home Depot is urging consumers to buy early and often.

“Get them while you still can,” the nation’s largest bulb retailer urges on its website. “Stock up on incandescent light bulbs before they are completely discontinued.” ...

This even though Central Valley Project farmers get irrigation subsidies. And there's the Central Arizona Project, which relieves farmers from having to grow climate-appropriate crops like the Tepary bean (a largely forgotten Indian variety as good as any other).
At least in AZ, agriculture is the biggest user of water (see pie chart):

If they really cared about water conservation, they'd start with the "longest pole in the tent," right?

Instead of setting off fireworks we can light up our homes with the old bulbs--for old times sake!
By the way, did anyone notice the standard toilet in the US has been changed by govt regulation to reduce water used? No one made any malodorous smells over that one, did they?
In a civilized and enlightened society, we just can't have people going around unregulated, now can we?

This is just government intervention into the free market. If people did not want incandescent bulbs because they cost too much or they were inefficient, they would have stopped buying them. (then the companies would have qualified for a government bailout) More hardship for the middle class and poor by those in government who claim to care about them.

We have complained about the water restrictive toilets, and how it takes sometimes several flushes instead of one. (a real water saver) In California they have even banned certain shower heads because they deemed it used too much water. There have been plenty of complaints but that law went into effect nearly 2 decades ago.

seems they like to make compulsory products that have mercury... maybe because volunatarily and without pressure, people tend to not want to be taking poisonous mercury into their bodies???

Ah, and I'll give you this to think about Rationalist:
1 Corinthians 1
26 For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;
27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,
28 and the base things of the world and the despised, God has chosen, the things that are not, that He might nullify the things that are,
29 that no man should boast before God.---NASB
Lowe's will take your money also for incandescent bulbs also.
Who's boasting before the Lord...? Not I ...I missed the point of your Corinthians post...

Be sure to thank your local low information and narcissistic self absorbed single issue voters for helping Americans to gradually adjust to socialism and complete government control with legislation like this..

Truly, Lenin was accurate when he described these people as "useful idiots"...

More congressional intrusion into the free market. Bunch of bureaucrats think they know more than the consumer. Another failed example of government oversight, just like ethanol, freon restrictions,"water saving" toilets, Obamacare, etc.

What can you say, we reap what we sow. Elections have consequences

Yes, move to the CFL's that contain mercury. Even the EPA says that should you accidently break one in your home... "get out."

The new green means something ohter than a concern for keeping the enviroment clean.

Soon billions of them will hit the landfills, if they make it that far.

One warning on the CFLs is that they should not be used in moist areas like your bathroom.
Yes, move on to the CFL's, save Mother Earth. I've had 2 of the 4 I had in use burn out in less than 2 years, and they can't legally be put in the trash. Think of all the energy being saved by folks who have replaced their incandescents, yet think nothing of using an energy hog dishwasher to save a little work. So many bad at math...
