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 Sánchez 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.
