Australia Bans Incandescent Lights

With all the concern about the environment increasing lately, Australia has taken a step toward energy savings by passing a ban on incandescent light bulbs. The entire country must use alternatives, such as compact florescent. The ban will come into full effect in three years.

I've been phasing in full-spectrum compact florescent bulbs as my existing incandescent bulbs burn out for some time now. The jury's out as far as I'm concerned on power savings and the bulb's lifetime, but if that's the direction everything's headed, why not be an early adopter on this one?
