This is not about the whole book (which I need to reread, like two more times ) but the part about the light bulbs. I am so on your side or you're on mine, either way we are in the same camp when it comes to light bulbs. Someone pointed out to me a very long time ago that incandescent is very nearly the same spectrum as the sun, (not intensity) and the others have severe deficiencies of "important for humans" colors. I don't have that particular information handy but some of the colors are in the yellow spectrum, which is important for health. As is green. I'm sure other colors are too. But those stuck out in my mind. I love regular bulbs (incandescent). I have to get appliance bulbs just to be able to use them. I do so happily. Unfortunately my apartment owner, replaces my bulbs with the curly florescent ones.
I did find an article that somewhat describes what I mean about the spectrum, but it's not as detailed meaning it doesn't show where the missing bands are, instead it shows dips in the graph.
I'm sure you've seen the article, but in case you haven't there is a link below. I prefer quality over quantity in everything... of course then there is you where quality and quantity are about even.
Back story, sort of... Sunlight, Candle light, and incandescent light are "Continuous Spectrum" light sources. the others are not and void of important colors.
"There is also the matter of quality of light. Fluorescent lights produce a quality of light that limits the colors projected. This can create an unpleasant atmosphere in a space. On the other hand, incandescent light gives a continuous spectrum of light, most closely mimicking daylight or sunlight or the illumination of thousands of candles."
It does get into the energy savings thing too, but, it at least tells you what you lose by doing so.
"I have a cluttered mind, you might have to tell me again" I'm okay with that. I now have more posts at: www.evvie01.com No central theme yet though, and I'm still learning.
Hey Bill and Paul, just finished this podcast. You guys had me grinning and chuckling all of the way through. I'm very excited for the books to arrive.
Also if our overlords allow incandescent bulbs for even a moment I'm stocking up.
Finally, Paul is like the last person to be chosen for a team sport. The Right and Left are refusing to have him but Team Liberty are like..."Yes! We get the funny witty giant guy!". We don't really want to play the game but it's nice to have buddies so we don't get roughed up too much.
