I am given to understand that the whole "saving the planet" reason for the ban on incandescent bulbs was a ruse, and that the real reason is that fluorescent manufacturers wanted a gigantic captive market for lightbulbs, and pushed for the legislation.

I am, of course, shocked and surprised at these revelations.
