New Zealand Scraps Incandescent Lightbulb Ban

NZ Lifts Incandescent Light Bulb Ban After Mercury Concerns Take Hold
The standard low cost, low pollution incandescent light bulb had been
banned in New Zealand but on Wednesday the NZ Goverment announced an
end to the ban.

There have been concerns raised around the world about the high-energy
costs involved in manufacturing so called "energy efficient" light
bulbs along with the potential risks resulting from the use of the
toxin Mercury in such bulbs.

The pollution of the Radio Frequency spectrum by so called "energy
efficient" light bulbs, which deprives people of their radio
programmes, has been raised in UK national newspapers. Traditional
incandescent bulbs do not cause RF pollution.

    Finally. The voice of sanity. I wonder if McGuinty is listening or if he’d recognize the voice of sanity if he heard it.

    cfl is very expensive to produce and very bad for all of us. We have no way to dispose these items in the garbage.

    Sure you do. Just pitch them in a green bag with the rest of your garbage. That’s what everyone else does.

    Just another Green initiative that backfired because Green and Intelligence don’t mix.

    PLEASE EVERYONE stop this light bulb ban!!! CFLs are not healthy for anyone! I would rather use 1 incandescent than 10 CFLs! CFLs are horrible sources of light!!!! If enough people complain we can stop the bulb ban!!! There is nothing wrong with incandescent bulbs!!! Climate change is BS! Man is not responsible for every change on the planet!

    The nice thing about incandescants is they’re inexpensive. I’m stockpiling. I’ve got about ten years supply stashed and I’m still adding to the pile.

    There’s only one ban that will return this Province to sanity. BAN McGUINTY!
