Location: CB 308 -College Avenue Campus-

PRESENTED BY: Kevin Fenwick, JSGS Executive-in-Residence

Light pollution takes a back seat to many other pollution issues facing the world today. When discussed, it is usually in terms of saving energy, but light pollution is a serious health issue for humans, birds, animals and plants. Some energy-saving innovations with respect to lighting have actually increased the amount of harmful light released into the environment. This discussion will examine innovative ways we can encourage light abatement and still support safe and energy-efficient communities.
