Maybe this is Old News

Have y’all heard about this, CFL, Compact Florescence Bulbs breaking and leaving mercury in the air and on surfaces. I think this includes the regular florescence long bulbs that are used in office buildings a lot, but don’t’ hold me to that.

Here are some links you can check out for information about mercury and these energy saving light bulbs:

Health Effects Of Mercury Exposure

How to clean up CFL Bulbs

Identifying Mercury Lights

Wonder what could happen with a landfill full of them?

Aren't these the kind of light bulbs they are going to make mandatory?

Your comment today cracked me up!

Yes, I think so. It is the only kind they sale at Sams Wholesale here (like a Cosco)

Kinda scary. I guess we all should start wearing those paper masks like they use for SARS. Hey maybe that would help my city allergies
