Urbana, Illinois, February 2012— “Although the corn market has received the lion’s share of attention over the past two months, the soybean market has become the focus of more attention in recent weeks,” said University of Illinois agricultural economist Darrel Good.

Everywhere, USA, January 2012— Indeed, January of this year marks the beginning of a planned phase-out of inefficient light bulbs in the United States that was signed into law five years ago by President George W. Bush.

It was designed to reduce energy usage from lighting up things nationally by some 30 percent overall within three years. The benefits of the phase-out will be a savings of between $100 and $200 annually on electric bills in each American household—a total equivalent to the output of 30 large power plants—and a reduction in global warming-inducing carbon pollution equivalent to taking 17 million cars off the road.

The first bulbs to disappear from store shelves are conventional 100 watt incandescents, but consumers can get compact fluorescent (CFL) or light emitting diode (LED) bulbs with similar light output instead. There are also some new more efficient incandescent bulbs that made the cut and will be available as replacements for conventional incandescents.
