CFL use *more* power than incandescents b/c start-up surge?..
I just heard of this recently that because of the start-up surge a CFL only use less energy than equivalent lumen incandescent if the CFL left on for a certain period of time.
What's up with that?! Anyone know of specific numbers on this? I've looked around a little, but I haven't seen some graph, etc. that illustrates this issue.
