    Default Jan. 2012 Light Bulb Ban

    A phase-out of incandescent light bulbs is set for January of next year by a bill signed into legislation in 2007 by North American Congress. The bill serves as an act to ensure environmental safety, with measures included in it that mandate gas-powered motor vehicle efficiency standards (among other things).

    This week, Phillips Co. released its own 17-watt LED bulb light bulb that exhibits a functioning capability the same as the consumer-favorite 75-watt incandescent bulb. However, the bulb's selling price is projected at $50 each - something many Americans cannot afford.

    Rather than using light bulbs that are affordable and reliable (which are also compatable with adjustable lighting fixtures (lights with knobbed switches), which most of those bulbs that are safe from the phase-out won't work with), it seems as though the average American's household will be much dimmer in the coming days than it once was.

    Republican members of Congress have presented a bill to repeal the phase-out of incandescent light bulbs. Should it pass, the measure to remove the light bulbs from store shelves in North America will be halted.
