The left never rests. The moment they achieve one major victory over common sense they immediately push farther afield in search of their next conquest. They are relentless. They have strung together an impressive array of startling victories in recent years. They got a candidate elected President of the United States- twice, yet- who openly claimed he wanted to fundamentally change America.
And, in recent years, some have demanded that cities dramatically reduce the use of streetlights and other forms of illumination at night, citing studies such as one by the American Medical Association that recommended that “people avoid staring at electronic screens after dark.” That’s right. Bummer for those of you in northern climes in the winter! No one watch television or use your laptop or I-pad after 4:30 p.m. “Back away from that smart-phone, Johnny! Who’s in for candlelight Yacht-zee?!”
According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, LED’s are of particular concern, as they increase “skyglow” by emitting more blue light than the older bulbs. The city of Los Angeles has installed over 165,000 LEDs in recent years, allegedly slashing streetlight energy use by 60 percent and netting $8 million in energy savings annually. This should be hailed by libs as a good thing, no?
No. Because, according to this article, a University of Bristol study found that, “certain moths can’t perform evasive maneuvers against predatory bats under LEDs.” (You can’t make it up!)
There goes the “Shining City on a Hill.”
Let there be…darkness!
