A bright idea puts Australia in a new light

Per capita, Australians are among the world's biggest producers of greenhouse gas (GHG). In light of this, Australia will phase out incandescent light bulbs within 3 years to curb such emissions, making it the first country in the world to do so. By 2009, incandescent bulbs, which lose much of their energy as heat, will be replaced by more efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. Hopefully, the ban will ultimately help cut 800,000 tons (by 2012) from the country's current GHG emission and lower household lighting costs by a whopping 66%. Wow! Definitely, a bright idea Australia!

And in California, a bill has been introduced by State Assembly Member Lloyd Levine that would ban the sale of conventional light bulbs by 2012.

The future looks bright! Indeed! And I kid you not!
