Don Shelby debunks Bachmann’s bill

31 March 2008

Short and sweet: Don Shelby on WCCO’s “In the Know” debunks Bachmann’s “Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act.”

What the Congresswoman fails to mention is that the bulbs last four times as long, and use one-fourth the energy of the old kind of bulbs. The less electricity used, the lower the amount of mercury spewed up a smokestack of a coal-fired power plant and the fewer fish will be killed by mercury.

And here are the coupons from Xcel that Shelby mentions. Visit earth911.org to find retailers near you that recycle CFLs.
