Europe to Unplug from Common Light Bulbs


The world's three largest light bulb makers said Thursday they will push European consumers to switch to energy-saving bulbs in a bid to cut carbon dioxide emissions that are believed to contribute to global warming.

Cutting back on carbon dioxide emissions is very important. Europe is paving the way for future energy conservation steps by switching to energy-saving bulbs. This simple idea in fact reduces the amount of power plants needed in Europe by 27. That is 27 fewer power plants to pollute our air and our planet.
