I find that in cooler situations (front porch, basement) that the CFL bulbs
are dim, though they eventually brighten up (though not in the time I am
wanting to get what I am trying to get done
.it would be silly for me to go
over and turn on the basement light 5 minutes before I go down to find a
tool from my workstation).
CFLs also have that problem with disposal, once they make that easier Ill
be happier with them. (though I have already switched over more than ½ of
my bulbs (I started when the CFLs first came out).
I bought 3 LED bulbs for a fixture in my bedroom, but the bulbs in there
havent burned out so I have not yet changed them over.
Personally, I think we (NAFEXers) who garden and plant so extensively should
qualify for automatic carbon offsets. Ive planted (and tend) 30+ trees in
my little yard, I cant imagine between that and all the other gardening I
do that I would still have a positive carbon footprint.
