With the BAN on Incandescent Light Bulbs commencing tomorrow you are now FORCED to use a mercury filled dangerous and costly alternative even if you don’t want to!
What happens in your Baby’s Room when you accidentally break one while cleaning and your Baby is in bed sleeping?
EVACUATE YOUR HOME AS FAST AS YOU CAN!……………..with your Baby of course!
Nice alternative isn’t it? Instead of using an old time tested cheap form of chemical free lighting you are now LEGISLATED to use a potentially deadly poisonous lighting system that some “pinhead Greeny dreamed up while in a nirvanic state of eco whacked out orgasmic alternative reality that literally embraces an Agenda 21 nightmare being driven down the throats of Western Society with the blessings of our current Governments!

TORONTO – If you’re a fan of incandescent light bulbs, you have just a few days to start stocking up on those 75 and 100 watt bulbs.
Beginning January 1, there will be a ban on the incandescent light bulbs, followed by a ban of the 40 watt to 60 watt bulbs on December 31, 2014.
This isn’t a new ban, but rather one that has been in the works since 2007. In 2011, the Government of Canada decided to allow consumers, as well as the lighting industry, to prepare for the new standards, and introduced a phase-out rather than an all-out ban.
Though concerns have been raised about the bulbs that will replace them, the compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), do not pose a health hazard, according to Health Canada.
One of the concerns surrounding CFLs includes ultraviolet radiation (UV). However, on its website Health Canada, reported that all light bulbs emit some sort of radiation.
A study by Health Canada found that with both CFLs and incandescent light bulbs used at a distance of 30 cm or more, the UV emissions don’t pose a health risk to the general population.
“Health Canada recommends that people keep this minimum distance between themselves and any light source,” Health Canada recommended on its website. “When CFLs or regular bulbs are used daily at 30 cm, exposure should be limited to no longer than 3 consecutive hours.”
As for what this means to the environment, CFLs use about one-quarter of the energy that incandescent bulbs do. They also have a very long lifespan — about 6,000 to 15,000 hours compared to 750 to 1,000 for the traditional incandescent bulbs.
“Lighting accounts for approximately 10 percent of a home’s electricity use, so replacing old incandescent bulbs with new efficient bulbs can make a big difference,” Joshua Kirkey, Communications Advisor with Natural Resources Canada said in an email to Global News. “Lighting standards save Canadians money: energy efficient bulbs last as long as or longer, and use less electricity, than traditional incandescent bulbs.”
The ban also means that Canada and the United States will be have the same regulations, which the government believes will increase competitiveness in the marketplace.
“This will also align Canadian standards with the United States, making it easier for Canadian business and industry to supply an integrated North American market,” said Kirkey.
