    This Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011 photo shows an oil spill near the town of Usinsk, 1500 kilometers (930 miles) northeast of Moscow. Komi is one of Russia's largest and oldest oil provinces but ruptures in aging pipelines and leaks from decommissioned oil wells make oil spills in the region routine. Environmentalists estimate at least 1 percent of Russia's annual oil production, or 5 million tons (35 million barrels), is spilled every year. That's equivalent to one Deepwater Horizon-scale leak about every two months. Crumbling infrastructure and a harsh climate combine to spell disaster in the world's largest oil producer, responsible for 13 percent of global output. (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky)

    FILE - In this Oct. 21, 2011 file photo, General Electric's 9-watt Energy Smart LED light bulbs are tested in an oven at the lighting group's Nela Park headquarters in East Cleveland, Ohio. Republicans in Congress are hitting the dimmer switch on a law that has angered Americans who love their traditional light bulbs. They've reached a deal to postpone until October enforcement of energy standards that many fear will be the end of 100-watt bulbs and fill stores with those more expensive curlicue fluorescents. Not a bright move, environmentalists say of the delay. (AP Photo/Mark Duncan, File)
