In the Dark About CFLs?

CFL or  Compact Flourescent Lamp was developed by Ed Hammer,  an engineer of General Electric as a response to the Oil Crisis in 1973.  It sought to reduce energy consumption because of the high cost of crude oil prevailing at the time.

The situation today is different.

Global warming due to CO2 emissions, toxic chemicals, and other industrial wastes emitted by rapidly industrializing economies and a growing world population, has brought the planet on the brink of irreversible damage that threatens mankind itself.

Modern technology has developed more efficient and higher energy saving CFLs priced more affordably. These would generate substantial savings, better lighting, and would allow individuals to contribute towards sustainable ecological preservation and development.
