    Exactly led bulbs have a higher initial cost but can produce the same warm light from incandescent. I think incandescent and compact florescent will be seen only in museums in a couple more years.

    Trump is rolling back the light bulb efficiency standards for one reason. The regulations mandating the standards were promulgated under the Obama Administration. Interestingly the underlying legislation was enacted during the Bush Administration and it was President Bush who signed the bill into law.

    I’m with you Mutz on the warm lighting. Can’t stand the harsh blue lighting of daylight bulbs. So all our lights in our house are 2700-3000 range LED lights (except for the garage which is I believe 5000).

    It was probably an Obama conspiracy to divert rich people's money back to his Muslim family in Kenya. :p

    Hold on, let me go ask my buddy who was the Deep State assassin that killed Epstein. He is also Bill and Hillary's maintenance guy at all their mansions located around the world. He'll know for sure, as he also rigged the LED bulbs to fail on command in and around Epstein's cell so there was no chance at all the hit could be captured on video. I'll let you know when he replies. Shh, keep this info on the down low please. ;)
