The Positive Impact of CFL Part 2
Thursday. 5.22.08 10:18 pm
Now I mentioned earlier what a difference one CFL could make. Reduces power fuel consumtion ideally by 53% So there are around 300million people in America. Right? So like if all of them replaced a 60W incandesant bulb with a CFL then what would happen? If we say 300million Incandesant bulbs need 4.3Gals of crude a year to run at 8 hours a day. 300 Million would need

4.33 x 3,000,000 = 12,990,000 Gals

A barrel of crude oil contains 42 Gallons. 48.43 Gallons of refined product. So let's use the refined product number.

12,990,000 Gals / 48.43 = 268,222.17 Barrels But guess what can't have .17 barrels so lets round that up. to 268,223

CFLs are rated at 46% of the regular bulbs so

268,223 * .46 = 123,382 Barrels.

Which mean that CFLs save how much oil?

268,233 x (1 - .46) = 144,846 Barrels of oil.

That means they save how much more oil than they use?

144,846 - 123,382 = 21464 Barrels more are saved than used.

Sickening to think that petty light uses that much of our oil.

Women with glasses are attractive.. but then again, I've always been into the nerdy, librarian look.

That sucks for your little brother. Good thing everyone in my car was wearing their seatbelt. They would have killed me if they'd gotten tickets.

We use CFLs in our house.
