How many Australians…..

…does it take to change a light bulb?

Foux! There to eat lemons, Axe Gravy soup.

Ooops, wrong joke.

Australia is planning to outlaw the sale of incandescent light bulbs as a gesture towards cutting energy use. California is hoping too as well. They’re actually a pretty scandalous waste of energy, as in terms of light output against power input, they’re only about 5% efficient. Compact flourescents are everywhere and cheap now, even if they don’t fit everything, and for Halogen fittings there are LED alternatives. (Has anyone used one?)

    The LED alternatives need to come down in price a bit more before I try them. I have changed over to LEDs for all my torches though if that helps 🙂 (except for the biggy spotlight that is).
    I think there are only two ordinary bulbs in the house now, and those are ones that are used with a dimmer switch.
    I certainly wouldn’t complain if the UK was to do the same as our Ozzie friends.
