On opening day of the 2007 baseball season, the owner of the Toronto Blue Jays stood in front of the giant jumbotron, an electronic extravaganza, encircled by a ring of dancing corporate logos and advertising, and exhorted every person In the crowd, preposterously, to go out and buy an energy-efficient light bulb. They applauded.
Indeed. They should have shouted back that they'll wait until their old ones burn out, and then razed the jumbotron so the owner would see the need to go out and buy a more energy-efficient billboard.

He could have become a hero of the global warming revolution by staging a compact fluroescent light bulb give away day. If he wanted more hoopla, he could run a light bulb amnesty exchange program: turn in your evil incandescents and get CFL bulbs in exchange.
