The CFL has some kind of ballast on the fixture end that makes it longer than the normal bulb. It wrecks the aesthetics of the sconce. If we used them, we'd have to completely replace the sconce.
On the CFL package, there's a warning that the things contain mercury and you can't just throw them out when they die. You have to recycle them properly by taking them to a CFL collection center. Awesome. Now when the light bulbs die, I have to make a special trip to a recycling center.
CFLs are supposed to help stop
Meanwhile, the cultists who scream at us about
The sun?!? Who knew?
So, to recap:
I need to replace my light sconce and use lightbulbs I need to recycle because they contain deadly poisons at the behest of people who burn energy like there's no tomorrow to stop something caused by the sun while for every one of us doing these things there are 7-10 others around the world doing the exact opposite.
Sounds good to me.
