No dimming in Oz

G’day,

I noticed that Australia is in the process of banning the use of incandescent bulbs.

One minor problem is that phosphorescent bulbs, I use about 8 in my home, have one somewhat annoying drawback.

If one has a dimmer switch on the light, the use of phosphorescent bulbs will create a really annoying buzz. 

I guess, this will mean that when a movie begins in a cinema, theatre, etc., the lights will simply go out.  Full Stop!

Can anyone find a solution?  I have the feeling that no one in “power” really gave it a thought, as they don’t use phosphorescent bulbs.  🙂
