|"....if every American household changed five regular light bulbs to this new kind of bulb-- it's called a compact florescent bulb--it would be equivalent to taking eight million cars off the road for a year. Now why the heck don't we do that? |
"....They're easily purchased, they cost a little bit more, but you make it back on your energy bill, and you will never replace that light bulb, because they last forever. So this is a very good thing we all should do. And again, it's not about sacrifice, because it's just as much light. You're not going to have to light five candles in order to read at night."
