Dangers of CFLs Worth Repeating

I Love Upstate left a comment with a link to an article on my post from last week about the dangers of mercury in compact fluorescent bulbs and the upcoming US ban on incandescent bulbs.

There are some very scary facts about how the mercury found in a single bulb can contaminate up to 6000 gallons of water beyond safe drinking levels. It's worth reading the article, so I'm putting it in a separate post to make sure as many people catch it as possible (because yeah, I'm sure the 200 or so hits a day I get are all from unique users).

Go to MSNBC for Shining a Light on Hazards of Fluorescent Bulbs.
