And a Critical View from Hong Kong...

Having just considered a South African criticism of what is going on, consider another good article, this time from Hong Kong, again highlighting the problems of fluorescent or LED bulb replacements, as well as the questionable need and legitimacy of the product regulation itself.

It comes from Dr Robert Hanson:
Dr Hanson holds a PhD in the Built Environment from The Bartlett University College London. He worked in the energy industry in England where he was involved in calculating energy prices and setting tariff s under both competitive and nationalized conditions.

The LEDs seem to have problems too so.
Funny how these things only turn up after the bans are already there (in most places). Steve

Thanks Steve
As it happens, I just got this from the author, which has more about LED problems, with possible dangers in the light they give out..
