image for Wal-Mart Endorses New Light Bulbs
Big Bulb; Big Dud

In an effort to reduce energy inefficiency and slow down global warming, Wal-Mart has announced a plan to push yet another change in consumers' lighting options. Already the new flourescent bulbs launched last year are obsolete even though they are only one year into their expected seven year life.

The new bulb is even more efficient and cost effective. It is said to be an even longer lasting bulb which should not need replaced until the next next millennium.

Critics argue that the public just isn't ready to give up the old incandescent lights yet and will reject replacing their bulbs yet again. They claim the drawbacks to these new bulbs are huge, litteraly, the bulbs measure six to eight feet across. The large bulbs put out little light, about as much as a bathroom night light.

Make Princess Poole's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
