    SYDNEY, Feb. 20 — Australia intends to phase out incandescent light bulbs completely within three years, the country’s environment minister said today.

    The minister, Malcolm Turnbull, said the government would use both persuasion and regulation to get the whole country to switch to compact fluorescent bulbs, which use less energy, as part of its drive to cut down on the amount of “greenhouse” gases, implicated in global warming, that it releases into the atmosphere.

    “The most effective and immediate way we can reduce greenhouse-gas emissions is by using energy more efficiently,” Mr. Turnbull said. “Electric lighting is a vital part of our lives; globally, it generates emissions equal to 70 percent of those from all the world’s passenger vehicles.”

    I've got a bunch of the fluorescent bulbs at home.
    You can get them with very soft lighting that works well for home use.
