  • Cumberland – Protecting Dark Sky – Back to Basics (Public).

Light pollution is growing at 2% each year, twice the rate of population growth.

New research suggests this could be as much as 10%. The benefits of darkness

are well documented, increasing human wellbeing and supporting ecological

systems to thrive.

Scientists warn that pollution caused by excessive lighting is altering the night

cycle of people, animals and plants and preventing sky observation. We need to

take immediate action.

Unlike other anthropogenic challenges, the reduction of light, and light pollution

can have an immediate impact.

This paper, with the assistance of a little audience participation, explores

common causes of light pollution and highlights simple measures we can all

take to reduce or eliminate excessive lighting.

Along the way we’ll also look at way in which we can measure and monitor the

quality of our night sky.
