How about it, greenies and progressives? You're all about the "Climate Change" deal, what about this pollution?



Will someone please explain the need to light up entire cities ALL DAMN night.

Heh....what a bizarre one...I can't find a coherent premise.

I don't think "greenies and progressives"
specifically turned on the lights.

I also didn't realize mommapup wanted
"greenies and progressives" to force other people to
turn off streetlights.

Unless, of course, mommapup is a promoter of Socialism ?



On a related note: most streetlights are LED now and use
1/5 the power. They still mess up the night sky though.

on another slant, some less than desirable acquaintances of mine say lights are great...you see what you want right away since yer in a bit of a hurry, and beats drawing attention with a moving flashlight

Turning a flashlight on to look for an intruder lets the intruder know exactly where you are while you are looking for him. Of course this has nothing to do with those streetlights but that's okay because MP has me on ignore.

Some who really care have been trying ..
"..Earth’s night skies are lighter, thanks to towns,
cities and industrial complexes. How that affects
astronomy … as well as birds, insects and people. "
" Alternative " thoughts..

I'm always encouraged when reading or
hearing of people trying to change something
for the better. Real easy to start putting
` thoughts down` in trying to make a case against
someone or a group . My own encounters in helping
to save and bring back the North American Peregrine Falcon
was met with a heap of opposition !... mad
Even faced with the resistance from
The Fish and Wildlife Agencies.. cool

` From all sides
```< left<> right<> and
````in the middle too
````Even other
``` Wildlife Foundations```
``that began losing money to
`````` The Peregrine Foundation``````
```````` Headed by a small group
`````````` Of dedicated
``````````` Research/ Biologist /Falconers```````````
````````````` Teachers / Lawyers too..
````````````` Without the Falconers - whistle
```````````````Those``` Bird Worshippers`` grin `````````
~~~~~~I really believe with all my heart !....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ the Peregrines would have
````````````````` never made a come back``in the wild``
And perhaps ? there would still be an ongoing
breeding project effort from what may still remained ?
````` Somewhere ````in time` whistle

No Doubt about it some things are becoming``` Very Bright !
``````````````` Out``` there`` ``` tired
``````````I was troubled by what was `happening`
~~ and started learning all I could do to change
~~ what was to me something obvious....
Now I no longer donate my time..
~~~~~~~~~ I still donate a good part of my `
````````````````````Cash````` grin
