    I have to be honest, I love LED bulbs......we remodeled the house two years ago and I went out and replaced every lightbulb in the house with LEDs.........haven't had to replace a bulb yet......

    Was somebody screaming to go back to the old bulbs? Why did Trump do such a stupid thing? Is it part of the program to show how he does not believe in science and global warming?
    It will cost Trumpies more money and force them to change bulbs more often.
    Trump is not too bright and acts on whim and a sense of revenge. He will show those scientists who is boss.

    The US is scrapping a ban on energy-inefficient light bulbs which was due to come in at the beginning of 2020.

    The rule would have prohibited the sale of bulbs that do not reach a standard of efficiency, and could have seen an end to incandescent bulbs.

    Many countries have phased out older bulbs because they waste energy.

    But the US energy department said banning incandescent bulbs would be bad for consumers because of the higher cost of more efficient bulbs.

    The Department of Energy said it had withdrawn the ban because it was a misinterpretation of the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act.

    Specifically, the law stipulated that restrictions on bulbs could only be implemented when it was economically justified, Shaylyn Hynes, a spokeswoman for the Department of Energy, told the New York Times.

    We completely use only LED bulbs in our house. They cost more but last much longer so the cost evens out.

    About five or six years ago, our utility company sent out free CFL bulbs, upon request. I have enough CFL bulbs to last for years to come!

    These bulbs are energy efficient too! Why would anybody go back to incandescent bulbs?!! I don't think they even make incandescent bulbs anymore?!!

    Last major U.S. factory making incandescent light bulbs closes

    The new bulbs are cheaper and better for the environment. If rightys want to use old bulbs because regs that protect us are bad,Trump is letting them do the stupid. They should be pleased.
