It’s one thing to oppose the grandiose “Green New Deal” as gratuitously imprecise or for its full-throated attack on all-things-ozone and carbon release in our global community.


It feels like something totally other to oppose narrow regulations that could advance the campaign to swap out incandescent light bulbs for light-emitting diode (LED) lighting, a small, practical step that, multiplied into the millions, would passively remove a healthy chunk of energy-eating pollution over time.



Actually, I was surprised to see a recent editorial about all this in The Washington Post,  which argued that “Of all the counterproductive policy campaigns conservatives have waged in recent years,  among the most irrational has been their war on the federal government’s efforts to update the light bulb .”

Incandescent light bulbs are expensive and they pollute. Getting rid of them makes sense.

Anyone who wants to keep them is therefore... crazy!

The old bulbs put off a lot of heat.

I live in an older house but I have swapped out the old fixtures. Almost all are LED now. The only one I have left is in the hallway. I need to change it but I have been lazy.
