While a regular (incandescent) light bulb uses heat to produce light, a Øuorescent bulb creates light using an entirely different method that is 4 to 6 times more energy-efÆcient. This means that a 15-watt CFL produces the same amount of light as a 60-watt regular incandescent bulb. CFLs last up to 13 times longer and use 2/3 to 3/4 less electricity than incandescent bulbs with similar lumen ratings.
China supplies 97% of the worldís supply of rare earths, which are used in a variety of products. The U.S. possesses the largest non-China rare earth resource in the world at the Mountain Pass Mine in California.
