Great piece in last Sundays Observer about whether or not we should switch to eco bulbs.
According to this piece compact fluorescent light bulbs use five times less electricity to do the same job and produce 60-70 per cent fewer CO2 emissions than normal lighting. I was also amazed to be told at the Green Tea in Newbury (which followed the showing of "An Inconvenient Truth") that if every household fitted one of these bulbs we could shut down one power station!
Some good examples are shown here and here and given the green score for our household we will be stocking up on these.
