Tungsten filament vs. the compact fluorescent lamp. In the year 2009 the EU put an end to the incandescent light bulb – and merely on the basis of a few expert opinions. In the name of energy efficiency, the way is paved for the mercury containing energy-saving lamp, with or without its reputed health risks. Bulb Fiction explores the pros and cons of the new light source/quality. And as always, when the situation gets touchy, many of those in high office are unavailable for comment.
