Trump Administration Wants to Exempt Some Light Bulbs From “Green” Standards Despite Protest. LED Bulbs Are Biologically and Environmentally Harmful Despite Energy Savings.

By B.N. Frank

LED light bulbs may use less energy but research has proven they cause serious biological and environmental harm because they create Light Pollution and emit Dirty Electricity.

Research has also proven that exposure to LED lights causes temporary vision impairment as well as macular degeneration and blindness.  Warnings have been issued by the American Medical Association  and other experts (see 1, 2, 3).  Our pets may be affected by exposure as well.

So environmentalists who continue promoting LED lights as “green” are basically “robbing Peter to pay Paul.”  Unfortunately – it’s still happening way too much.

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Energy on Wednesday proposed exempting some light bulbs from federal efficiency standards that take effect next year, a move environmentalists said would boost pollution and power bills for consumers.

[…]

The proposal would remove three-way bulbs, candle-shaped bulbs used in chandeliers, reflector bulbs used in recessed lighting, and others from having to comply with the new efficiency standards.

Advanced technologies, including light-emitting diode or LED light bulbs, use far less electricity than incandescent light bulbs, which produce far more wasted heat.

[…]

The changes would result in $12 billion in extra power bill costs for consumers, said the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group.

[…]

The Alliance to Save Energy, a nonprofit alliance of business, government, environmental and consumer interests, said the proposal would give a lifeline to makers of inefficient incandescent and halogen bulbs.
