Some last, some don't. I have some that are over 15 years old. They save me money though, so I'll never go back to the old-fashioned heat bulbs. Why aren't they made in America? You got two choices: 1) Americans are incapable of making such a complicated thing, or 2) American manufacturers made the conscious choice to off-shore them. I vote #2. Every time I'm at the store looking to buy these (or almost anything else for that matter) I try to find some that are made in the U.S.A., but so far, no luck.
Again, off-topic though. Lets have this discussion in one of the several light-bulb posts or in one of the open threads. I only brought them up because we're talking about taxing to cover externalities, and less-restrictive ways for government to reduce unwanted behavior (like smoking, or wasting energy).
