“Eco-friendly” light bulbs are an eco-disaster

“An energy-efficiency measure is turning into a ticking green time bomb,” says a story in today’s Washington Times.
The story continues:

The federal government plans to require consumers over the next several years to replace incandescent light bulbs with more expensive but more energy-efficient and longer-lasting compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs).  But improper disposal of the mercury-powered bulbs poses an environmental hazard, and the federal government has given little guidance to consumers.

Here is all the guidance consumers need: send your used compact fluorescent light bulbs to Washington!  They’re the experts.  They’ll know what to do.
