Canada to ban inefficient light bulbs

Well, another country has decided to get rid of incandescent light bulbs. Take a look:

Canada has switched on to Australia's plan to ban incandescent light bulbs, with Ottawa announcing its own timetable to ban the sale of the inefficient bulbs by 2012.

The ban was part of a plan to cut down on emissions of greenhouse gases, Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn said.

Canada is the second country in the world to announce such a ban, after Australia said in February it would phase out all incandescent bulbs by 2009.

"Making the switch to more efficient lighting is one of the easiest and most effective things we can do to reduce energy use and harmful emissions," Lunn told a news conference.

It's so easy to do. The quality of light is hardly different. Please switch out your bulbs!
