Global Warming is a liberal hoakes

You won't here any of this nonsense about the ozone layer heating up like a green-house or carbon monoxide in the atmosphere once we get rid of all those librals in congress this fall. Global warming is just a massive hoakes by the extremest liberal media and their foreign socialist allies who want to make the USA in to a north american union like europe. It will never happen Long live the TEA PARTY. go back to kenyaa barak hussein!

In other words, you don't like "Liberal" "hoaxes" but want to spread hoaxes of your own.

I don't necessarily believe in man-made climate change but any decrease in the amount of pollution producing power plants is a very good thing in my opinion. Also your unprovoked slur against Barack Obama nullifies your opinion

Not just about climate

I'm not particularly concerned about climate change, but I'm sick of brown-outs and high energy costs. You make up for the higher up-front investment (even with LEDs at their current price) within a few years; and you don't have to replace them every 6 months like incandescents. It just makes so much financial sense to switch to a more efficient bulb.

LMAO "cut emissions 20% by 2020" - as if that was even close to an amount significant enough to impact the course of climate change! Seriously, get real Europe, stopping climate change isn't about changing lightbulbs- Its about fundamentally changing and rapidly rebuilding the energy economy and the lifestyles of opulence and excess in the developed world that place such taxing demands upon it. Youll have to cut emissions by at least 50% by 2020 and by 80-100% by 2050 if you want to even hope to hold on to anything vaguely resembling the climate of the 20th century. Otherwise just be honest and forget about it, and get used to your new planet. 67.142.172.21 (talk) 23:19, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure whether to agree with you or not, but LED bulbs would be better. I guess they'll start phasing the 'energy saving' mercury-filled ones eventually.

I absolutely agree that LED lamps are far superior to compact fluorescent, both in terms of energy efficiency and life/cycle toxicity. Currently they're quite expensive, but the price is coming down.
