Australia was the first country in the world to officially ban old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs as a solution to climate change – but was it a good idea? In fact, does anything we do in Australia really make any difference? Should we stop eating chocolate for the good of the planet? Why should we think twice about our shopping choices? And what’s the real story behind Australia’s light bulb ban? Screw Light Bulbs delivers straight answers to all those questions and more. Rather than lecturing, it uses examples to show how Australia could deliver better-run services that would save us time, money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
