“Green New Deal” Promotes LED Bulbs Which The AMA, Scientists and Some Environmentalists Say Are Harmful

in greennewdeal •  13 days ago 

Rolling Stone magazine devoted a sizable chunk of their
April issue to the “Green New Deal.”  The GND promotes “Energy Saver”
light bulbs – CFLs and LEDs – which unfortunately are NOT green. 
Alongside the article, “The Green New Deal Is Cheap, Actually,”
there is a chart entitled “The True Cost of Carbon.”  The chart
encourages 6 lifestyle changes including that we “Go LED.”  Ironically,
the “Go LED” endorsement isn’t terribly convincing – “Switching out
incandescent bulbs for compact fluorescent of LED bulbs is one of the
actions recommended to reduce carbon emission at home, but the impact is
modest.”

So the impact is modest and health and environmental experts (including the American Medical Association)
have been warning for many years that these bulbs are harmful.  Why the
Hell are these bulbs still being endorsed as “Green” and being
installed anywhere at all?

Even scarier – streetlights are now being made even more harmful with “Smart” and/or 5G technology (see 1,2,3,4,5,6.)

Of course, if these bulbs aren’t safe in street lights, it’s reasonable to assume that they wouldn’t be safe installed anywhere (see 1,2,3.)

“Green New Deal” supporters need to stop turning a blind eye to toxic technology if they really want to save the planet (see 1,2,3.)

I have changed LED lights to halogen bulbs a few weeks ago.
