Not so bright of an Idea

An organization which owns its own building and then discusses light bulbs at their meetings are mired in minutia and the mundane.

The recent leak by Baird and Co. at the enivronment mini-is-tree which wants manufacturers to stop producing the regular light bulbs is not a bright idea.

Did the government apply the same limit before everyone started buying the more expensive flat panel plasma or digital TVs and monitors over cheaper yet bulkier CRT displays? No.

So what happened?

Basic market forces. If Canadians are so environmentally concerned, wouldn't they start buying the new coily lights on their own?

I have said it before, and will likely say it again: legislators seldom understand the real issues that they are trying to legislate.
