Hot on the heels of similar moves by Australia and California to energy-saving CFL bulbs, EU leaders have told the European Commission to rush through proposals to replace incandescent light bulbs in the homes of all 490 million EU citizens.

This plan is part of the drive to cut CO2 emissions by 20% by the year 2020.
