and after everyone goes to fluorescent, greenpeace will be asking for handouts so they can campaign against the use of fluorescents because of heavy metals... creating their own job security i suppose (if it can be called a job)

Well, HB sells 10 Watt, 450 Lumen power LEDs, roughly equivalent to a 40W incandescent, or 9-13 Watt CFL.

Unfortunately, LEDs are far more prone to overheating because they're pretty much a point lightsource, and an overheated LED is no better than a CFL, efficiency-wise...
