Blazing London

Post by brian livesey »

According to the research group, Eco-Experts, London is the eighth most light polluted city on Earth. The City is 67 times brighter than it would be if it was uninhabited.
Due to light pollution, Londoners are finding it harder to sleep ( have they not discovered curtains? :lol: ). Light pollution is also said to be linked to obesity.
Then, there are the effects of light pollution on the circadian rhythms of London's fauna, as their metabolisms struggle to distinguish between night and day.
