Chris Haire is one of the most worthless excuses for a journalist that I've ever read. In fact, he's even worse than Will Moredock was. Sickening liberals like Chris give a pass to anything that happens as long as there is a liberal in the white house. Disgusting.
I personally am not a huge fan of cfl bulbs. In my own experience, they are not usually worth the cost. Something to remember though, cfl's are NOT meant to be turned on and off for short periods of time, like in say, a closet. The ballasts in them are meant to run for longer periods of time. An article I read, I think it was in Reader's Digest, reccommended cfl's in places where the light would be on for at least 15 minutes before being turned off and to use an incandescant in other places. Also, the old addage about turning on a light using as much electricity as running it for an hour is not true. Turning on an incandescant bulb uses about as much electricity as running it for 5 seconds. Yes, seconds. I look forward to LED bulbs coming down in price, I would use them in a heartbeat as they use about 1/4 the power of a cfl bulb.
