I received an email from Chuck
Hamrick of 1000bulbs.com informing about their mission to support green!
Here is a comparative statement in support of their Green Movement.

Parameter

Incandescent Bulb

CFL

LEDs

illumination

LEDs use only 10-20% energy to produce equivalent
illumination
Shapes, sizes and colors
Standard

More expensive if you only compare their price to
standard incandescent bulbs

(Must not be thrown into regualr trash as the contain little mercury!)

Needless to say that traditional Incandescent Bulbs produce
more heat than light resulting in huge loss of ENERGY! On the other hand
while CFL/ LED bulbs cost more initially but they seem to be a great long
term investment for saving your ELECTRICITY bill.

My neighbors just switched to these bulbs. I'm not loving the flourescent light they give off though... kind of harsh.
