"The difference is, there's no downside here."

What about CF bulbs for your garage in the middle of the winter? They're probably OK in Arizona, but what about freezing or subzero temperatures, like where I live? They don't work under those conditions (I've tried it).

I'm sure there are plenty of good uses for CF bulbs, but prohibition of them will cause too many unintended consequences. Consumers should be encouraged to use CF bulbs where they make sense, rather than being forced to.

Without life, Biology itself would be impossible.
