If you read our en light ening “how to switch to LED bulbs” tutorial , you’ve hopefully already seen how much money and energy you can save by replacing your incandescent bulbs, but we wanted to make it even clearer how easy and effective a home light bulb makeover can be. We headed over to Brooklyn to give a light bulb overhaul to the managing editor of Inhabitots , our very own Julie Seguss ! Julie is going to be a new mom in just a few months, so saving money is of the utmost importance right now, but she still wanted to keep her Park Slope home illuminated with a warm, bright glow. In just a few hours, the Inhabitat lighting makeover crew (aka Inhabitat editors Jill & Yuka ) were able to swap out all of Julie’s electricity-guzzling incandescents and halogens with energy-efficient Philips LEDs , and we think you’ll be impressed with the monthly savings we tallied up for Julie at the end of the day. Check out our video above to see the whole makeover, and find out how much extra cash Julie and her husband will have after the makeover to spend on diapers and baby clothes!

Comments Off on Tea Party Fights for Companies’ Freedom to Pollute

Photo: nmfbihop , Flickr, CC I can understand the anti-regulatory sentiment that cable news shows tell us is still sweeping the nation; it makes for an attractive ideology. The notion that government interference is the root cause of all our current woes — that if the gov would just get out of the way, the American people would sort it all out — makes for a straightforward, patriotic-seeming solution to get behind.
