Look at the fourth picture ( here ) with the shuttle.

Could you imagine having a parking spot like that?

Fix the kids or the problems with the lights?

Can you imagine a lost space-trucker seeing those lights from far...would they have a good burger, a beer and a bed over there? Unfortunately for him we would turn our rockets and bullets at him as soon we have him in our sights.

From an ecology point of view it does look rather wasteful, there must be better ways of lighting the country without it looking like Christmas every night.

Hoods over lamposts directing more light downwards might be a simple start, maybe they could use less powerful bulbs then.

Any other ideas?

Although it is extremely polluted, I admit that is a beautiful picture. It really shows the more populated areas of Britain and get's you wondering what's going on in the dark areas, if there just unpopulated or reserved for science.

You should see the light pollution picture of the U.S., it's really bad.

The European Union of Dictators already told us we can't use certain bulbs.



The high energy filament bulbs are being phased out in order to improve energy efficiency and meet climate change targets.

The switchover, which will affect all of the European Union's 500 million citizens, was first ordered at a Brussels summit last year as part of an ambitious energy policy to fight climate change.

I wonder if that same picture if taken in 10 years time would look so bright then? prolly not!

Dont they use HPS bulbs for most street and motorway lights back home in the UK? They chew power big time.. maybe they are gonna switch those for energy savers or LED arrays?

Thanks for the link!
