Hmmm... environmentalists have embraced the compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulb, which cannot now and will not in the foreseeable future be made without mercury. In the state of Maine, mercury levels from a broken CFL bulb caused in excess of six times the state's "safe" level for mercury contamination. ONE BULB!
It's 10PM do you know where your children are? Safely at home with a Mercury death bomb above their wee little heads?!
Usually, environmentalists want hazardous materials out of, not in, our homes. These are the same people who go berserk at the thought of mercury being emitted from power plants and the presence of mercury in seafood. Environmentalists have whipped up so much fear of mercury among the public that many local governments have even launched mercury thermometer exchange programs.
