Toilet & Lightbulb Throwdown

Posted in Climate Change,Government,U.S. by Ryan on the March 11th, 2011

A great segment of video showing Rand Paul blast Kathleen Hogan, a deputy assistant at the Energy Department. He outlines the hypocrisy of those that fiercely advocate a woman’s right to choose, yet support restrictions that force compact fluorescent light bulbs and low capacity toilets upon consumers.

While I’m sure all conservation policies are not a bad thing, I am still confused why we would do away with harmless (but inefficient) light bulbs in favor of twirled tubes full of toxic mercury vapor. And put them in every home in America.

You would think this conservation crowd would have warmed up to nuclear power already.
