Out with the old, in with the new?

Next year, on October of 2012 could very well be the end of our old friend, the 100 watt incandescent light bulb. And the future for 60 and 40 watt incandescent bulbs in the coming years also looks dim.

That is, unless Congress does something to block a bill signed by President George W. Bush in 2007, which phases out the manufacture of incandescent bulbs over the next two years. Many folks across the country see this law as an infringement of their right to live and let light their lives anyway they want and would rather fight than switch to energy-saving LED lights.

What do you think? Should this old reliable light bulb be replaced for a newer energy efficient offspring?
