Why do we continue to ignore the problems we will develop with CFL's if people do not recycle them. As more of them enter the landfills the mercury in them will leach into nearby streams and into our water system. Also, the precautions on them are not being fully understood by most of the folks I have spoken with here in NC. If one should break in your home and you have carpeting under it, the standard is to replace the carpet because of the mercury. Never vacuum the mess either for it will enhance the mercury vapors in your house. CFL's do not like cold weather either and take several minutes to warm to full illumination. And how about those individuals who use the incadescent bulb to keep their wells from freezing? Now they will have to use a heat strip which is more diffucult to see if it is working. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction! Newton got it right!Jan 20, 2011
