Another problem not addressed by this is that lamp shades do not fit over these bulbs. The video also mentions to double wrap a bulb in plastic bags so it doesn't leak mercury into the landfill. What happens when the plastic deteriorates in 10 million years. I thought we want to keep plastics out of the landfill if possible.
This is just one more example of the idiots running our country and thier ability to actually do so. Hey if you want everything green, I;ll sell you a bucket of green paint...don't get it in China because it's full of lead and I will be out of a good job and won't be able to afford $12.00/gal gas.
At least one congressmen spoke about this with a voice of reason!
