Real environmentalists don’t use compact fluorescent light bulbs

Lots of people use compact fluorescent light bulbs and claim they’re helping the environment.  They’re wrong!  Compact fluorescent light bulbs contain mercury, a dangerous water pollutant.

“But compact fluorescent light bulbs use less energy than incandescent light bulbs,” say these self-proclaimed environmentalists.  If they really cared about the environment, they’d be using LED light bulbs.  There is no mercury in LED light bulbs, and LED light bulbs use a whole lot less energy than incandescent light bulbs.  They’re more expensive than compact fluorescent light bulbs, but if you’re not willing to spend a few extra dollars to save our planet then you’re not really an environmentalist.
