In EU, shoppers are "panic buying" incandescent lightbulbs

The (London) Telegraph reports (hat tip: Instapundit):
In the EU, it will soon be "an offence to import or manufacture 75W bulbs." Consequently, prices of 75W incandescent bulbs as panic buying spreads. This follows similar panic buying last year when 100W bulbs were outlawed. Next year, 60W bulbs are outlawed and in 2012, manufacture of any incandescent will be illegal. Consumers find that the global-warmist-approved replacements for these bulbs give off a "sickly light" and are often just plain "ugly." They can also be toxic.
