Evidence continues to mount about the dangers of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's). The mercury in each bulb not only poses considerable risks for homeowners, but the bulbs are going to wreak havoc with landfills and our groundwater supply.
A Johns Hopkins professor warns: "This is an enormous amount of mercury that’s going to enter the waste stream at present with no preparation for it."
Common sense needs to rule and the bill signed by President Bush outlawing traditional lightbulbs within the next five years -- effectively forcing consumers to buy CFL's -- needs to be repealed.
