New light bulbs!

Here is your "new" new light bulb. It will last between 20,000- 50,000 hours. It uses a fraction of the power of a 100 watt incandescent light bulb. You do not need a Haz-Mat team to clean it up if it breaks, unlike the squiggly CFL bulbs. It is dimmable, with regular dimming switches.
The process in which it is made requires the use of some nasty chemicals and minerals, which will poison the environment- however, most of these chemicals are already being used in the production of integrated circuit chips. 
They cost, at least $50 each. Go ahead- count the number of lightbulbs in your house and multiply by 50 - I'll wait. You are being forced to buy this bulb (or those CFL bulbs, which I wouldn't dignify due to the damage to the environment they cause) by the federal government in the name of ecology, climate change, global warming.
