Low Energy Bulbs

australia has banned the normal light bulb. so in the future you will only be able to buy low energy light bulbs in auz.

europe aren't going to follow, they just pledged to reduce carbon emissions by a further 20%.

although a positive move, it's not the clear and simple message australia have sent out to their citizens of commitment to slowing climate change.

instead of a vague 20% reduction this single step gives every australian citizen a clear example and direction to reducing their energy consumption.

why can't we have some clear simple leadership instead of rehashed and respun figures.

We've replaced just about every bulb in our house now. Why haven't we banned the normal light bulb yet?
