Greenpeace launch a Ban The Bulb campaign in India
Greenpeace India have launched their own, unaffiliated, Ban The Bulb campaign calling for legislation to phase out incandescents in India.
A global switch-over to efficient lighting systems will trim the world's electricity bill by nearly one-tenth, the International Energy Agency says in a report, which it claims is the first global survey of lighting uses and costs. Nineteen per cent of the world's energy consumption is given over to lighting.

It would be appreciated if Greenpeace acknowledged the existence of www.banthebulb.org and the discussions we had in London several months ago.
