Are they worth the Headache?

I read this article and thought it fitting to point out, that like in the oil days, there are lessons to be learned about new technologies.
As an example, it took some time and discomfort for people to learn about Carbon Monoxide. As we know it is a a poison and should not run our vehicles in enclosed areas. By the same token, we are now learning some side-effects of new technologies. It is not to say that we should be afraid of them. In this case, as an example, the compact fluorescents, do not effect everybody. As in times passed, scientists will test and find out the route of he cause and either fix it, or give the general public ways to live with it that make it completely harmless.
