I bought some light bulbs so I will have lights after 2012 if I am still alive. I saw brother in the store and told him but he said I didn't know what of what I spoke 'cause he had new kind of bulbs and they were not $50 each. I studied about it and decided Clayton didn't know what he was talking about.
Two leading makers of lighting products are showcasing LED bulbs that are bright enough to replace energy-guzzling 100-watt light bulbs set to disappear from stores in January.
Their demonstrations at the LightFair trade show in Philadelphia this week mean that brighter LED bulbs will likely go on sale next year, but after a government ban takes effect.
The new bulbs will also be expensive — about $50 each — so the development may not prevent consumers from hoarding traditional bulbs.
Clayton probably has a china bulb made in India and will be out lawed after 2012.HA.
