What about LED Lighting? It is available now in a replacement bulb!
e-mail me; tlanie@sgp-usa.com 65 watt bulbs use only 5 to 15 watts last 50,000 hours.CFL's are not truly Green.They are full of mercury that will pollute our environment. CFL's put off poor light and will further damage our world! Do not buy into it. The LED alternative is here!

I agree that LEDs are the future etc...however statements like yours are misleading:
1. CFLs are not full of mercury - they have about a dot (.)of mercury.
2. The light they give us is generally better than most current LEDs retrofit bulbs in terms of kelvin temperature, beam spread and cost.
