"Football club’s all-night glow is visible for miles … and keeps the birds awake"

"Residents in a south coast beauty spot are taking action against their local football club, saying its efforts to keep the pitch in tip-top condition through the winter are harming the ecosytem"

An article in one of today's national newspapers says that glowworm numbers are falling, partly because light pollution is confusing them when looking for a mate.

"It's worse than that Jim...."

The article I read said that fireflies are in danger of becoming extinct because of light pollution, although admitting that pesticides and loss of habitat are the most serious threats to them.

Why is it the we all have pollution in the form of cars rammed down our throats daily yet noise and light are totally ignored.

Has anyone confronted such organizations to ask how many lights, what wattage and calculated the carbon footprint, SHAME them
