I admit that when Christmas time approaches, I start thinking about putting up the lights on the house. That said, I’m also one of the first to talk about light pollution when I see it. I first really started to think about it when I read the book Voyage of the Turtle by Carl Safina.
Then when I read The End of Night by Paul Bogard, I realized how bad it is. So reading this article only reminded me of those books. The article is entitled “We’re Losing the Night (and that’s not good) by Michael D’estries over at the Mother Nature Network. Definitely a good read, perhaps in the middle of the day, outside on the porch.
