LED Light Bulbs
An article I found interesting on nytimes.com talked about the advancements of today's light bulbs and how much more beneficial LED light bulbs are compared to the standard $3 bulbs that the world is telling us to buy. In the article, is stresses how LED bulbs will save the average person up to $200 from running costs because they use 60% of electricity compatred to a mere 5-10% like regular bulbs. I like how the article took the side of the buyer and stated how these bulbs can be expensive but David Pogue-author, said that they have came down in price by over 50%. LED bulbs can now be bought for $10-15 and it's very much worth it.
Pogue ends the article with saying "LED bulbs last decades, save electricity, don’t shatter, don’t burn you, save hundreds of dollars, and now offer plummeting prices and blossoming features. What’s not to like? You’d have to be a pretty dim bulb not to realize that LED light is the future." I love the ending of this because not only does it show you the multiple benefits of LED bulbs, but also patronizes the audience and makes them feel like they're missing out if they're not buying these bulbs.
