LCD TV production processes emit nasty greenhouse gas

Despite some vendors touting the eco (power saving) credentials of their latest flat panel TVs - they neglect to mention the Nitrogen Trifluoride gas emitted during the manufacturing process. NF3 is not included in the list of gases monitored under the Kyoto agreement, despite it being massively better at trapping heat in the atmosphere than CO2.
