I am writing concerning the comments made by Honiton shop owner Liz Denton. I don't think she realises how hard it has been for campaigners to make people see how much better for the environment energy efficient bulbs are. They are four times more efficient, last ten times longer and are totally safe (even with the mercury), if disposed of correctly. Before energy efficient bulbs, a quarter of electric was used for lighting homes. Fluorescent bulbs used in kitchens for years can cause the same problems in the tiny minority who are affected by strobing from lights, and they can use normal bulbs. If people really are so selfish to destroy the planet for future generations they should think about how they would feel if their children and grandchildren do not have the same standard of living they have, just because they refused to change and treat the planet with more respect.
