這裡有兩樣
誰都不喜歡上升的東西
您的燃料帳單和污染
不喜歡!
我們要介紹一 簡單的方法
把這兩個箭頭倒過來
耶!
現在看一般家用的白熱燈泡
在您身邊可能就有一個
去呀,四周看看
那個燈泡一點也不酷了
它就像錄放影機一樣
有充分理由很快被淘汰
要被一種新的燈泡取代
稱為緊湊型螢光燈,CFL
它能輕易地帶來極大好處
理由有兩個
主要問題在於煤
它用來生產我們50%用電
您每次點著燈泡
絕大部份用來點燈的電力
都來自於燃燒煤
燒煤會釋放出二氧化碳
和其他污染物到大氣中
煤燒得越多,污染越重
一點也不好
不僅如此,煤是要花錢的
您燒越多煤,帳單也就越貴
所以最終目標是要藉著省電
來減少燒煤
因此燈泡的選擇很重要
用新的CFL來取代舊燈泡
可以省錢而且避免製造污染
請考慮這三大問題
首先,假設您讓家裡一盞燈
連續開著一年
每天24小時開著
您用的是750小時白熱燈泡
壽命可持續一年
那就是說在一年之間
您那盞燈要消耗12個燈泡
每個60美分
總共要花7.2美元
現在換用CFL
每個價值四美元
用在同一盞燈
CFL的壽命可達一萬小時
那相當於13個普通燈泡
道理很明顯:少麻煩、少花錢
但接下來的兩點更重要
平均來說,照明的費用
佔了每月燃料開支20%
而CFL所耗能源
相當於白熱燈泡的四分之一
也就說用CFL可把
原本100元的燃料費降到85元
好酷啊!
最後,換用CFL每年可以
防止大量二氧化碳排放
那種污染導致全球氣候暖化
您現在明白了吧!
CFL是更聰明的居家照明方式
還不信嗎?
看!這並不是以前那種
慘藍色的日光燈管
CFL近年有了長足的進步
在一項通俗機械的單盲研究中
受試者都取新的CFL
而捨棄白熱燈泡
而且用的接口相同
CFL燈泡含有少量汞
因此應該適當地回收或丟棄
我要問的是
「為何不改用CFL?」
下次購物時,記得買一包CFL
取代大部分用過的燈泡
還有門廊的燈
還問您的朋友「為何不改?」
難道您還用錄放影機
來看電影嗎?
