In this episode of WILD ROOTS we talk with Paul Bogard about his book "The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in the Age of Artificial Light". We discuss how adding more light reduces our awareness of one of our most precious human experiences: star-gazing. We discuss how irrational fears of the dark lead people to fall for one of the greatest and harmful marketing schemes in existence. As the use of artificial lights increase, not only do we lose our most precious stars but we lessen our health and safety. Most importantly the use of artificial lighting is not only extremely wasteful but becomes incredibly destructive to our remaining ecosystems worldwide. We discuss how irrational fears of the dark lead people to fall for one of the greatest and harmful marketing schemes in existence.
Rediscover the Universe, resist unnatural illumination and reconnect to our dark night!
