Fear of the light: why we need darkness

Post by Brian »

From the Guardian online:

It's along read but worthwhile persevering. Taken from an essay published in the Summer 2016 issue of the Virginia Quarterly Review. Particularly alarming are the references to the light-pollution effects of Fracking and LED lighting in the US.
