Ireland yesterday became the first country in the world to ban the traditional lightbulb.
Householders will be forced to switch to new long-life low-energy bulbs in 12 months’ time.
New legislation is being introduced banning the sale of the normal incandescent lightbulb from January, 2009.
The incandescent lightbulb must die. Yes, I know the light from CFLs looks a little different. Tough. Saving the world takes sacrifice. Get over it.
