White LED lies: It's great, but Nobel physics prize-winning great?

@Scatter - look at the numbers, not the technology

We'll just have to wait and see what the Commission does regarding a halogen lighting phase out. My money is on them going for it (it's a no-brainer now with halogen replacements now being at the right quality and price point) so my money's on the Gone Green trend for lighting.

And if they do that then they are the most stupid idiots in the history of bloody fools, and the entire lighting industry will fight them to the death.

Just because something is LED does not mean it's efficacious. Lots of them are utter shite, consuming more electricity to make less light than a halogen.

The last round of proposals set a Lumens/Watt minimum and said nothing whatsoever about the technology. This is the only sane thing to do - defining a particular technology is the act of a moron.
