The carbon footprint can be decreased by a large amount if incandescent bulbs are replaced with compact fluorescent bulbs. Compact fluorescent bulbs use about seventy five percent less energy than incandescent bulbs as the non-use of the mechanism of warming to the light. This leads to a lower emission of greenhouse gases and therefore the reduction of the carbon footprint. Therefore, the correct answer is option a - replacement of incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs'.
