Gormley on the light side of resource war

SO in order to counter climate change the Environment Minister and Green party leader John Gormley will ban the humble light bulb.

At the same time he and his Government colleagues facilitate the gas-guzzling US war machine as it wages a resource war in Iraq via Shannon airport.

The Government also capitulated to the big powers on nuclear non-proliferation that will see India, which has refused to sign the non-proliferation treaty, engage in nuclear trade.

Am I missing something or are light bulbs more dangerous than resource wars and nuclear proliferation?
