Eat Mercury And Die, Lighting Nazis!!!

More against confiscating my God-given traditional lightbulbs:

CFL Bulbs Have One Hitch: Toxic Mercury

The Environmental Protection Agency and some large business, including Wal-Mart, are aggressively promoting the sale of compact fluorescent light bulbs as a way to save energy and fight global warming. They want Americans to buy many millions of them over the coming years.

But the bulbs contain small amounts of mercury, a neurotoxin, and the companies and federal government haven’t come up with effective ways to get Americans to recycle them.

I think infant bottle nipples should be made of CFLs! Only then, after the brains of your children have been destroyed, can you come for my traditional standard lightbulbs!

Eat this, you motherfuckers!

CFL light bulbs save electricity, but they also contain toxic mercury ‚ and Metro makes them a hassle to recycle

The drive to save energy in the wake of last year’s electricity price hike has created a ticking environmental time bomb – one that could send mercury to the region’s landfills and water supply.

Compact fluorescent light bulbs – the energy-efficient lights promoted by PGE as a way of fighting the power crunch – contain mercury, a poison that can devastate any environment where it accumulates. And while the bulbs can be recycled, there’s a serious hitch: Metro currently doesn’t offer curbside pick-up for the bulbs. That means people who aren’t willing to drive them to a recycling facility – and people who haven’t been warned about the bulbs – may end up putting them out with the trash.

Europe to unplug from common light bulbs
In warming stand, bulb makers agree to eliminate least efficient lighting

They estimated that if all inefficient traditional incandescent bulbs sold in Europe were to be replaced with more efficient bulbs — such as compact fluorescent lamps or CFLs — the continent would need 27 fewer power plants.

And:

last month, Australia’s government announced plans to ban incandescent bulbs within three years, while a California and New Jersey lawmakers introduced bills seeking to do the same in those states. Last year, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, began actively promoting the bulbs.

You wanna see me go all Robert DeNiro Taxi Driver on your ass? Just try to take away my standard light bulbs, goddammit!

It will be War!
