Over the next two months we set up several menus, some included demonstrating energy saving compact fluorescent bulbs. Yes, those energy saving fluorescent bulbs did not come out in the year 2002 when Home Centers and eventually Supermarkets started selling them regularly. The first energy, money and earth saving bulb (SL-18) had been around since 1982! Unfortunately, because of money making goals, twenty years had to go by before they became readily available at affordable prices. I fear the same will stand true for the new LED bulbs. BUT I digress...
Our most advantageous demonstration would be at former NYC Mayor Dinkins' Press Conference for Earth Day. There would be speeches, children, celebrities, and a comparison display of light bulbs with me as the expert witness to answer any question from the press. Nevertheless, the main goal was to have NYC demonstrate their own new energy saving bulbs in each chandelier hanging from the ceiling in the "Blue Room" of the Press Conference. What a show! What a lesson in politics... I will have the conclusion to this in my blog tomorrow.
