They also contain mercury. Workers making them are exposed to unacceptable hazards and by purchasing them you are saying that you support this company, its ideals and practices. They are dangerous if they break, and need additional precautions to be taken just to dispose of them! <br />

Fluorescent light bulbs will not work in cold temperatures. They emit a buzzing sound which irritates the hell out of certain animals... All in all they are not as environmentally friendly as one would think, its all about mass consumerism.
