Confirmed from Space: Bad LED Streetlights Make Light Pollution Much Worse

Julia Calderone at Tech Insider wrote a great article on how the LED streetlight retrofits in other cities around the world have made light pollution much worse-exactly what we’ve been saying about Honolulu’s plans all along. These are results from the PhD research by Alejandro S├ínchez de Miguel described at the Cities at Night website. The website has a lot of information about the effects of light pollution and what can be done to lessen it.
