While clearly an idiot, there is some point to be made that I think he did a great job of missing entirely. All of those warnings are just requisite legal speak. I bet there are just as lengthy guidelines about safety procedures with incandescent bulbs. The point is that the bulbs last longer and are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. The consumer will find this out on his own given that he's free to access information.
In my humble opinion, CFL's are a waste of time anyway. Why bother with this middle of the road nonsense when we could be using LED's? Way more efficient and last forever.
However, if you think that this is some sort of legislative waste of time (which it obviously is) you haven't yet witnessed the brilliance that is the British Houses of Parliament. More time is wasted in that building than throughout the entire internet.
