Light Pollution

Light pollution isn't just a problem for astronomers. It means the loss of an amenity for all of us now and the generations that follow. It affects the natural world, can ruin our health, wastes resources, and what's more, we're paying for it!

Light Pollution

The reports that I used for the article are available online.

(1) Deda, Elbertzhagen & Klussmann, Secretariat of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (UNEP-CMS)
Light Pollution and the Impacts on Biodiversity, Spaces and Their Habitats

(2) Gallaway, Olsen & Mitchell, The Economics of Global Light Pollution

(3) The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution,
Artificial Light in the Environment

Nice article. Important info.

Even plants need rest time. They are stimulated by light and most species require dark periods to rest. Light pollution weakens them.

Absolutely right, Lori. Plants also have their biological rhythms and light is important to them.

I remember going to an evening event at Kew Botanical Gardens and one of the glasshouses was open. They use green lighting. It's quite pretty, but the main point would be that plants aren't responsive to green light, so it minimized any possible damaging effects.

For more information about any aspect of light pollution, including practical lighting tips, check out the International Dark-Sky Association.

The British Astronomical Association's Campaign for Dark Skies also has a wealth of information.
