Our laziness will save the planet. True story.
This is a picture of our kitchen with the lights turned on:You'll notice that 3 of the 5 lights are burned out. And they've been like this for a while. We are too lazy to replace them. Oddly, all three burned out bulbs are of the new CFL variety. And the one incandescent that we still have in the kitchen is one of the two that is still working. We have not bought any incandescent lights since these specific style CFLs have come out.
Here is a picture of our living room:In this picture, you'll notice that 2 of the 4 lights are burned out. Shawn's waiting for one more to burn out before we go out and get the fan CFLs...he says it's because it would look funny with 2 incandescents and 2 CFLs. I know the real reason--it's because we're lazy.
But, the beauty about lights is that if they aren't working, they aren't pulling any energy. And that, ladies and gents, is how we're going to save our planet--by being lazy.
