Biden to reverse Trump and ban Edison’s lightbulb

The incandescent bulb worked pretty well for almost a century and a half. Are the LED lights that will replace it health hazards? Climate Czar John Kerry and his boss President Biden think it’s worth the risk to you.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The Biden administration announced that it is phasing out the use of incandescent lightbulbs, reversing a Trump-era policy as it seeks to curb annual carbon emissions and shift the United States toward more efficient sources of lighting.

The Department of Energy finalized two new rules Monday that require manufacturers to phase out any lightbulbs that produce less than 45 lumens per watt. When combined, the department said, the measures will save consumers an estimated $3 billion annually — though the decision is likely to irk fans of the old-fashioned bulbs, which still make up roughly 30% of the market but eventually will be prohibited under the standard . . .

In implementing the ban, the Biden administration seeks to prioritize the use of energy-efficient bulbs, such as LED or fluorescent lights.

  1. The trend is more than obvious. Anything and everything that Trump put it place, destroy it, get rid of it, “cancel” it. This is why our country is in the worst shape ever in my lifetime (I’m in my 70s)

  2. The new bulbs don’t last long, they break easily and are hazardous when broken. Once again we are being subjected to edicts that have no foundation in government. Why is is the whims of a few, need to be followed by the majority?
