In the near future, you will no longer be able to purchase incandescent bulbs in the supermarket. The United States government has put a ban on the bulbs and the phase out process is now underway. Among the many problems that led to the ban include: The method that powers incandescent bulbs is inefficient. The mechanism that lights up the bulb is a filament that requires a lot of heat to produce enough light. This massive heat emission consumes a lot of electricity. They emit a lot of carbon dioxide and mercury into the atmosphere and this is bad for global warming. They increase the need for cooling systems which in turn increases the amount of coal needed to keep the cooling systems running. Power plants that use coal emit greenhouse gases in to the atmosphere. They last a shorter time and this puts a strain on manufacturing processes and on the environment. Though they ...
