LA Times - that's a big deal. Please add your positive contributions to this OpEd piece:

Scott, I couldn't figure out how to add a comment to that particular oped. I registered with the site and everything, and when I'd click on the "comments" link, it just took me to the bottom of the page. I didn't see a "post a comment" button though.

From Paris pioneers light pollution reduction

Quote:

“Lighting has a social role, it serves as a reference point,” said Elise Bourmeau, vice-president of the Lighting Union. “We will adapt. But truly, there are solutions that would allow us to keep [lights] on in an energy efficient way.”




This is someone who has totally missed the ecological point or has too much of a vested interest to care
