Light bulb manufacturers will cease making traditional 40 and 60-watt light bulbs at the start of 2014. While their replacements -- halogen bulbs, compact fluorescent bulbs, LED bulbs and high efficiency incandescent -- cost more, they also provide significant energy and costs savings over the long run. Do you think the light bulb ban is a positive step toward sustainability?

No: 78.3%
Yes: 21.7%


The future of lighting on a global basis is solid-state, i.e. LEDs; no question about it. Halogens, fluorescents, and high-efficiency incandescents will not be able to compete, in the long-term, with LEDs, especially as future LED prices drop dramatically.

Let the free market determine which bulb is the most efficient for our needs.

Just another green game.

It makes very poor economic sense.

The free market would determine the best choice. The government has overreached again.
