      I've tried to explain a related concept to treehugs on a few occasions.
      Incandescent light bulbs are typically only really inefficient when you
      don't need the extra heat. In the winter, then they just keep the
      heating from kicking on as much, which is typically seasonal. If you
      have electric heat, its a wash probably. But the part I had getting
      across to them is that all that statistics about the inefficiency of
      these bulbs don't often take winter into account. So much politics, so
      little real science sometimes.
