Why we crushed 10,000 lightbulbs:
These are obsolete, but widely available, energy wasting
incandescent lightbulbs. This type of bulb wastes 95 percent of its
energy generating heat instead of light. This wasted energy mostly
comes from burning fossil fuels like coal - causing climate change
by adding carbon dioxide to our atmosphere.
We crushed these bulbs in Berlin while EU and G8 ministers were
meeting there for the, "Energy Efficiency: Shaping Tomorrow's
World" conference to send them a message. We need national bans on
energy wasting lightbulbs, and enforcement of an EU-wide mandatory
efficiency standard on domestic lighting by 2010.
