While I actually prefer the new bulbs in several ways, I think it is horrific to try and ban the old ones.
Good on any state that stands up to stupidity.

South Carolina is very hardheaded about the US Government trying to tell it what it can and can not do. It has always been a very big believer in states rights. It has vehemently protested anything in the past where the government has tried to tell it what it can and can not do.

CFL's pulse at a rate similar to an NTSC formatted television screen.
this very specific flicker rate puts your mind into a state where it is several times more open to influence, than in a normal state.
it has been suggested that CFL's are also made to work hand-in-hand with smart meters, and can be triggered remotely to pulse at different rates achieving different psychological and physiological results, in whomever is on the receiving end.
this has nothing to do with the environment....or at least not the one your thinking of.
smart meters will also be how they plan on enforcing the new phase in. so if you wish to circumvent this just run your lighting on a solar panel or some other off-grid power source.
