18 seconds

A whole yahoo group completely devoted to getting the people of the world to change their light bulbs ~ fantastic!

Check them out! I'm not planning to join the group, but their introduction alone is inspiring. In fact, here it is:

"Would you believe you can change the world in just 18 seconds? In the time it takes to fix a cup of coffee or tie your shoe laces, you can change a light bulb and have a profound impact on the environment.

Put simply, change a light bulb, change everything. If every American replaced just one light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL), together we'd save $8 billion in electricity costs and enough energy to light more than 1.5 million homes for an entire year. We’d also be preventing the greenhouse gas equivalent of nearly 2 million cars worth of emissions!"
