Ontario in Canada considers a light bulb ban...Ban The Bulb is pleased to see that the enthusiasm for banning incandescent light bulbs is proving contagious...
According to www.CBC.ca, Ontario in Canada is the latest place to suggest a willingness to get things moving.
Let's just hope that more politicians start to mention how they intend to decide which light bulbs should be banned (and by when!), what they are going to do to ensure that all CFLs are responsibly recycled, how they are going to help the poor to change their lighting, whether any heavily-taxed incandescents are going to remain available for specialist purposes, which other wasteful technologies they would like to get banned and/or which other energy-efficient technologies they would like to help get established...
Ontario is impressed by Australia's decision to ban old-fashioned incandescent bulbs.
