No. They call that an incandescent bulb. Incandescent lights are not inefficient at producing light. In fact, they are 100% efficient.

The magnetic field has no effect on electromagnetic radiation (light), which is where the vast majority of the energy we receive from the Sun comes from. The magnetic field protects us from the charged solar wind, made up of a soup of disassociated protons and electrons. Normally, the magnetic field focuses this wind… » 4/17/14 2:25pm 4/17/14 2:25pm
