Also, I agree-- the concept of banning incandescent lightbulbs is something like trying to put a cork in a hole in a ship from a missile. What they should be doing is making ELECTRICITY greener in the first place. If our energy was all solar, hydro, and wind turbine, well then, what's the difference between lightbulbs? Coal and oil and gas are the problem, not lightbulbs.
New Zealand has greener forms of electricity - mostly hydro power, and the problem is having enough water - we get so dry in the summertime that the lakes get reduced to dangerously low levels.
So, they are installing new wind turbines down south - it has upset some people because the place that they are putting them is famous for scenery.
We don't have nuclear power because NZ wants to be nuclear free.
It is so hard to please people when it comes to terms of electricity - we are spoiled in what we get on an everyday basis but complain if it poses a risk or whatever. I will never understand humans.
