I noticed the same thing at Home Depot.

I was at
the local Lowes yesterday looking for alternative lighting
to replace some
burned out bulbs and was looking at what is out there
The only thing that they have available are those 'made in China'
fluorescent 'bulbs' which contain small amounts of mercury. No LED
I am concerned that buying those fluorescent
devices is spreading the
possibility for greater mercury contamination for
later. Is this alternative a Faustian bargain? Are we
electricity at the cost of dramatically increased mercury
landfills and the environment? I see those things in 12 packs
trusty Wal-Wart and have to wonder what the effect of that will be
and why no one seems to care.
Or am I an environmental chicken
little worrying about nothing.
