Leaving the lights on, polluting the planet, polluting the night

I posted this almost a year ago. It’s quite simple really, the more we leave lights on, the more fossil fuels are burnt and the subsequently the planet heats up. We need to reduce our fossil fuel emissions by 50% before the end of this decade.

Leaving the lights on when not necessary is wrong on so many levels. Doing so pollutes the environment and pollutes the night. Every light left on causes wood, coal, oil or gas to be burnt increasing atmospheric CO2 and enhancing climate change, or it causes a bit of radioactive waste to be produced lasting thousands of years, or it wastes renewable energy and resources causing unnecessary environmental loading and resource extraction. Your pocket and bank account may be able to waste planetary resources and cause significant pollution but the planet and its environment cannot. Just remember also that there are countless humans out there who haven’t the ability to squander like you or your society might be doing. This lack of lighting severely restricts the progress of many individuals and societies especially in terms of the education of children. Finally, beyond the human centric view of the world it is important to consider that before two centuries ago the night was mostly dark but now humans have invaded and polluted it with no consideration for the creatures whose domain is the darkness. We need to give back the night just as much as rewild the wilderness.
