Kearney is one of the many folks here who flunked "reading and
comprehension". I have nothing against CFL lighting and have never said it
doesn't save electricity. CFLs have been available for more than 20 years
and consumers have proven that they don't want them by giving them only a 5%
market share. Now, they're being forced on eveyone.

My sole problem is with the numbers used by those who try to tell us it's
going to make a big difference in combatting global warming. Anybody can do
the math - it's about 5th grade level. I've posted statistics from DOE while
the proponents have merely resorted to distortion, name calling and
character assasination. At best, CFLs might reduce US electrical use by
5-6%. Electricity generation from coal accounts for about 40% of carbon
dioxide emissions. The reduction will be wiped out by about one year's worth
of normal growth in electricity use (which will most likely be generated by
burning coal). Do the math.

There are other massive changes in lifestyle that will need to be made to
deal with global warming and all the BS about CFLs saving the world is
counter productive, merely postponing the inevitable.

Re: d-day
I have been slowly changing over to CFLs. After removing my 1600 watts
of solar panel supplement, I find my bills even lower now with the CFL
conversions. I am quite impressed.

However, everything comes with a tradeoff.
The energy bill at my home is not the only factor. How much extra
energy is taken to produce these alien shaped lamps? If the cost is
any indication the energy savings, I may never break even, with the
mercury I will be dispersing into the environment, from these
environmental Molitov Cocktails screwed in everywhere.

The electrical utilities will hate them with the 3rd order harmonics
they produce. Our utilities uses neutral reactors that will turn the
currnt harmonics into voltage harmonics for the consumer on the
system. See how your motors like the extra heating.

WTF!!!!

You will be dispersing LESS mercury into the environment by using CFLs.

Unless you use dead CFLs as skeet pigeons the mercury will be contained
in a landfill somewhere. MUCH less dangerous to the environment than the
mercury contained in coal plant stack gases.

Conservation is good and CLFs conserve resources. Unfortunately it takes
legislation to achieve conservation in most cases. It really does not
matter what the final percentage of total conservation ends up being.

A watt saved is a watt saved.

Starting a thread equating conservation to doomsday is NOT helpful.

Unless it was an apology for lying to my boss and accusing me of a
crime I don't care what you have to say.


Re: d-day

I never lied to your boss -- only shared my concerns a *after* you
went real life with me and posted my SSN in Usenet.  His reply was
that he was sorry that "our problem has become yours".  He said he
would look into the matter but also indicated (as others had already
confirmed) your problems with absenteeism caused by alcoholism and
drug addiction.  Others who know you have said pretty much the same
thing.  One added that you argue with everyone around you (that
wasn't exactly a surprise).

I used to tolerate your antics because I felt sorry for you.
Remember the times you called me up in a drunken stupor late at
night?  I treated you with friendship when everyone else was posting
insults at you for the stupid things you posted.  You repaid me by
jumping on the Olson bandwagon (I guess you thought it would win you
a friend) and posting attacks.  Only after you went RL did I respond.
I did, however, warn you several times not to do it when you
threatened to do so.

Well, you lost your job but that wasn't my fault.  It was your own
behavior, the same as the other nine jobs you lost in less than 10
years (cf: Texas alarm licensing website).

Graham, I've said this before and it still applies.  If you'd stop
and think before you act you'd get in a lot less trouble.  Frankly,
if you'd stop trying to "get even" with me for what you precipitated,
you'd get slammed a lot less.  Think about it.  Does the pleasure of
doing something mean make up for the thrashing?  I don't really want
to fight with you or anyone else but if you insist I promise to hit
hard.

Re: d-day
You run MS OE and should know how to use the cancel function to delete
your post.

Hope you have a cheap lawyer. Been there, done that. The time was the
worst part. A year and a half wasted.

He does.  Rhonda cleaned him out in the divorce settlement.

Go ahead and kill filter away!

Be sure to correct the spelling on Bill Fuhrmann's name.

If you go ahead and add Mr. Houston to your kill file you will
effectively remove a high percentage of the knowledge available on this
group.

Most Usenet servers ignore cancel messages.  Sending one is a waste.
It's simpler to apologize for the error and move on unless, of
course, someone is more interested in continuing an argument than
moving on.

Poor excuse for the servers that honour cancle messages. Most, I have
seen honour them, except for Google archives.

I don't need to excuse anyone's server.  I posted in error -- meant

not much I can do about it.
