The First Energy bulbs contain mercury. Why not LED bulbs that don't, and last much longer?

Environmentalism is such a scam.

CFL's make lots of sense where they are used continuously, such as in a kitchen or family room. They make ZERO SENSE in places where they are not used a lot, like in hallways and closets.

Another scam perpetrated on people by lobbyists. When will people get a clue about what's going on?
