Less than a week after it was outlawed we have gone from global warming to a ice age. Notice big butt Michelle stayed on the island while uncle Barry came back to save the nation. Sure miss global warming. Mike

Sorry guys...its my fault! I literally changed 3 bulbs yesterday in my room...as soon as I did the wind kicked up and the bottom fell out of the thermometer!


Only thing I am not a huge fan of is it takes a minute for the bulbs to light up 100%...

Could just lose her out the back of the plane like in the movie, that would work also. Over some other Country of course we don't need a crater that big here~~~ whistle

I like the money I have saved in electric.$$$ Especially in the outdoor floods
I also bought a smart water heater
Bulbs are still cheep and handle surges better... imo

The reason for Government forced action is the grid is not going to be able to withstand growing consumption.........

Build more generators. Not wind turbines at $500,00 or more each.

Theres a lot of water in this country(Michigan), and a few water generators would help.

Why do we have to be on the U.S. electrical grid anyway? Something goes wrong in say Niagara Falls and the rest of us suffer!

Control, control, control!

You must like paying high prices. If you had no grid you would pay much more and be out much more. It evens things out. You must not have been effected by the last ice storm a couple of weeks ago.

I wasn't affected by that ice storm much. Only because Consumers Energy has devastated about every tree in the area of the power lines 100' either way, finally taking the junk out of the way.

Usually we're the first to lose power and last to recover. Many more times than I hate to admit.

So if Niagara loses power, its okay that you and I do too?

It takes more energy to make the new light bulbs then they save... How about we build more generators and drill more oil!

The planet has been warming and cooling as far back as fossil evidence goes. Obama should issue an E.O. prohibiting such variations. lol

I have consumers and haven't lost power in years..yes they do trim trees but that is a must because they just keep growing. Better times ahead.
