UPDATE: EU will capture and destroy the "Heat Balls," discussed earlier today here at KPC.
Can it really be better to make new bulbs, and destroy these without using them? How does that save energy? Can they be serious?
Answer: YES, if you understand that environmentalism has nothing to do with saving energy, and everything to do with religious ceremonies where cost is actually a signal of devotion. As soon as you start to think of environuts as religious zealots, it makes perfect sense.
(Nod to the Blonde, again. She just can't let these Heat Balls alone!)
