What is the impact of light pollution?
Light pollution can be extremely invasive and can cause significant problems for those suffering from it. Not only can it harm the sufferers quality of life. For example, it can disturb sleep when it shines into people's homes, it also: -
- Interferes with our view of the night sky.
- Wastes energy and therefore is a waste of resources and money.
- Can have an impact on the ecology and wildlife of an area, and affect the behavioural patterns of mammals, birds, insects and fish.
