(Sigh) "That" old chestnut...  Disproved years ago, yet still repeated all over
the Internet as if it were gospel.  Do the math, and you will discover that
using the incandescent bulb releases more mercury into the environment than the
CFL, even if the CFL is improperly disposed of via landfill.  Take the bother to
properly dispose of the CFL, and you have a huge win for the environment.

Scroll down to the 4th topic.

That right is your under the law of the US or UK. You can object, complain,
campaign etc etc but you are still required to comply with the law in the
mean-time.
