No more incandescents at Ikea
This final note today, from the Swedish furniture company Ikea. The company confirmed this morning it has stopped selling old-style incandescent light bulbs in its American outlets. It pretty much had to by 2014 anyway. That’s when new federal lighting efficiency standards kick in that basically rule out anything but compact fluorescents and LEDs. Ikea will sell those, by the way.
You have to put ’em together yourself.
