(NaturalNews) Australia has banned incandescent light bulbs, starting in 2009. The country down under, looking to reduce its environmental footprint, raised its energy standards for 2009, making the old style of light bulb too inefficient to be sold in the country.
Statements and opinions by Mike Adams • Incandescent lights are obsolete. But fluorescent lights contain toxic levels of mercury that pose a serious risk of harm to the environment. The most environmentally friendly and cost-effective lights are LED lights, which use far less electricity than any other type of light. (Full disclosure: I am the founder of www.EcoLEDs.com, a company that supports green living and reduced CO2 emissions through the promotion of energy-efficient LED lights.)
• A mass transition to fluorescent lights will only result in an environmental crisis as mercury-laden fluorescent bulbs are dumped in landfills where their mercury can seep into groundwater supplies. Fluorescent lights also burn out quickly (often in 1,000 hours), whereas LED lights will last 50,000 to 100,000 hours (a lifetime, for many applications).
• Inefficient lighting consumes enormous amounts of energy that is essentially wasted. Reducing CO2 emissions will require every advanced nation to eventually ban incandescent lights.
