How LEDs can overcome the power shortage?

Sometimes it becomes difficult to understand how the world will survive without electricity. As the global population is increasing at a fast pace and people are using electricity in a reckless manner, it is worrisome if our generations will not have electricity to use or they might be experiencing severe environmental shocks.

People are still unaware to conserve energy and they are still using heavy electricity bulbs that are harmful to both the energy-grid and the environment. In Pakistan, there is too much shortage of energy and the country is suffering from a severe energy crisis.

Re: answer

Indeed, we have a forum Smart Home & Appliances ( ). Apparently, you chose the wrong forum when creating your post.

However, although it's smart to use LED's in stead of old-fashoned light bulbs, they aren't a smart appliance when used stand-alone. They only would be considered smart if, for example, you can dim them via an app on your phone or they would turn off automatically if you leave the room or like Philips Ambilight change color in accordance with colors on the TV.

So even then it would have been the wrong forum. I'll ask the forum administrator to move this to the CNET Lounge forum.

Letting go of fuel based engines

Well there are several ways to generate power without the use of fossil fuels. The energy businesses don't want it because they make lots of money off of fossil fuels. Until someone turns the tide (like getting rid of the congressmen that take bribes from lobbyist), fossil fuels will still be used.
