Since the sun was formed in a mass of burning gases in a grand galatical ballet, burning gases or burning elements have provided all of our light. Whether natural light or man made, we’ve had a particular natural wavelength that has defined our illumination. But of course some unimaginative politicans want to take that away and replace it with an artificial glow from a plastic strobe.
Quite frankly, Malcolm Turnbull can get stuffed! If I want to buy a traditional, warm, lightbulb, I should be able to buy one! But Malcolm and co want to BAN THE BULB?
What is the world coming to? Australia is now going to be bathed in artificial, flickering, hard on the eye, flourescent/LED bulbs. This is something I would have expected from the ALP, not the bloody LIBERAL Party. When Latham decided he was going to ban plastic bags, John Howard called him “Mandatory Mark”. What’s the difference?
If I were to decide to sell traditional light bulbs, I would be a criminal on par with someone who sells weed? WTF?
Apart from the obvious – that it is a slap in the face of personal freedom, what about the increase in headaches, in sore eyes, in people being effected by flourescence? And aesthetically, please don’t tell me “nu-breed” lights look anywhere near as nice as traditional “burning filament” lights?
This environmental push is bullshit. All in the name of the next Killer Bees/Yellow Peril/SARS/Y2K Bug, we have to compromise our personal freedoms. What a joke.
