Incandescent bulbs already are endangered. Australia has already banned them effective starting this year. The US has a ban starting in 2012. We've switched almost all of our incandescents to CFLs. For the most part they've worked OK. I've had a few that didn't last a month. They went dim really quick. They'd still come on, but they were REALLY dim, like blacklights but not as cool.
Don't blame me. I voted for Chuck Norris.
