If Australia sees the wisdom in switching to more efficient light bulbs, thus reducing emissions and power bills, then why can't we? Are Australians simply seeking to be personally virtuous (ala Cheney)? Doubtful. It just makes sense (cents). At least two of the more progressive states, California and New Jersey, have the right idea and are looking to phase out the wasteful bulbs.

Speaking of states and the environment, here are some more examples of the new federalism (click here and here), with states proactively defending their right to a clean environment since those at the federal level continue to either do nothing or work to make matters worse.

Oh, and it's great to see that environmental concerns are increasing in intensity in the red states. It's about time!
