Something that I have great concern with is the new "compact florescent lighting". These bulbs have a miniscule amount of mercury in them. They are tauted as being a very wise choice due to the duration of the bulb and savings in the amount of energy they use. However, there is currently no way to dispose of these bulbs in a safe manner. They are just dumped in our landfills along with all the other household trash. All the state department offices and other government offices are replacing their lighting with these bulbs. So as thousands of bulbs with a tiny bit of mercury are deposited in our land fills, what are we doing to our earth...how are we endangering our future generations as well as the wildlife? Just some deep thinking... If mercury can contribute to neurological damage, i.e., ASD (and it does not take exposure to a large amount to have an undesired effect) then I believe completely that we need to have a safe way to dispose of these bulbs before we replace "all" our lighting with them.
