Sky heritage

THE night sky is rightly regarded as a world heritage, and we have obscured it for the past 50 years.

Skyglow is one of the banes of our age, and at last we might see a slight reduction. There will be no change in road accident figures, indeed there might be a reduction! BRAKE is guilty of scaremongering and has no evidence to back its assertions.

Likewise, it is only perceptions about increased crime; there is evidence that crime reduces.

Imagine if a burglar had to bring with them their own lighting, they would stand out like beacons on dark nights.
