Regarding your article ‘EU to switch off traditional light bulbs by 2012‘:
I try to be as green as the next person and understand the need to reduce the use of incandescent and halogen light bulbs. But has anyone else had the difficulties I have encountered while reading by these newer so-called efficient light bulbs?
I have purchased these over the past decade or more but still find them amazingly expensive and hard to read by. I am tempted to start stockpiling the old but amazingly cheap bulbs to ensure that I can continue to read the back pages of the financial press about how my savings are shrinking during my potential retirement beyond 2012.
