As an amateur photographer, I can attest to the inferior quality of CFL light. They give off an unhealthy looking green glow, and have ruined many a photograph. Compact Florescent Lights have good uses, but we should not ban beautiful incandescent lights.
If the government is going to start outlawing beautiful objects just because they allegedly consume too much energy, then there are many things government could outlaw: holiday lights, water fountains, fireworks, beautiful architecture, etc. Banning these inventions might save energy, but what would be the effect on our quality of life?
This country needs to return to the often misunderstood and forgotten concept of freedom.
