On Tuesday, Energy Minister David Parker announced that New Zealand will be banning "inefficient incandescent bulbs" in favor of longer lasting, more efficient compact fluorescent bulbs and low voltage halogens.
In 2007, Cuba exchanged all incandescents for CFLs and banned the import/sale of incandescent bulbs. The Clean Energy Act of 2007 calls for a phase out of some incandescent bulbs (those of roughly 40 to 150 watts) in the US by January 2014. Incandescent bulbs are supposed to be out of Australia by 2010...the list goes on.
So what do you think? Should Thomas Edison's invention get tossed all over the world?
