Chapter 9 Light Pollution

“Night Lights”, an article about the effects of light pollution, by|
my friend Dan Rozell

Light pollution regulations from the Town of Southampton, Long Island, New York

If we have too much man made light, we cannot see the beautiful stars in the sky. 
Light pollution can have negative effects on wildlife(see Dan’s story above).
However, if a place does not have any man made lights, it may mean
that they do not have any electricity at all, no electricity for a refridgerator or tv or
 computer or cooking........

no lights can mean a hard life....
