Heatballs

November 14, 2010

Siegfried Rotthaeuser, a German engineer, is importing “heatballs” into the EU.  Can you guess what a heatball is?

We still know it as a light bulb but it’s not just any light bulb.  It’s an incandescent light bulb, the supposedly energy inefficient eco-unfriendly kind.  Of course, if you consider what happens to the energy which is not turned into light, you’ll realize that it is converted into heat.  The light bulbs burning brightly above my head are helping to heat this room.  No energy is wasted!

The EU has banned incandescent light bulbs but heat balls are perfectly legal.

Stock up now!  Those CFLs won’t keep you warm.
