    Edison and his light bulb
    All lights have advantages – none should be banned, including the ordinary Edison bulb.
    Even if there were energy savings with regulations on light bulbs:
    Citizens pay for the electricity they use,
    there is no energy shortage justifying usage limitation on citizens,
    and if there was a shortage of finite coal/oil/gas, their price rise
    limits their use anyway – without legislation.
    Emissions? Light bulbs don’t give out CO2 gas -power plants might.
    If there is an energy supply/emissions problem – deal with the problem!

    Ceolas.Net has extensive research on why the regulation arguments are wrong,
    including that the supposed energy savings are not there anyway,

    with US Dept of Energy references
    Under 1% overall energy savings from efficiency regulations on incandescent lights.
