Rolling Stone magazine devoted a sizable chunk of their April issue to the “Green New Deal.” The GND promotes “Energy Saver” light bulbs – CFLs and LEDs – which unfortunately are NOT green. Alongside the article, “The Green New Deal Is Cheap, Actually,” there is a chart entitled “The True Cost of Carbon.” The chart encourages 6 lifestyle changes including that we “Go LED.” Ironically, the “Go LED” endorsement isn’t terribly convincing – “Switching out incandescent bulbs for compact fluorescent of LED bulbs is one of the actions recommended to reduce carbon emission at home, but the impact is modest.”
So the impact is modest and health and environmental experts (including the American Medical Association) have been warning for many years that these bulbs are harmful. Why the Hell are these bulbs still being endorsed as “Green” and being installed anywhere at all?
