Why is Pleasanton spending $1.6 million dollars on INCREASING LIGHT POLLUTION and trying to guise it as going green?
Saving energy is great, but we shouldn't be adding more obnoxious artificial light into the night sky.
It could be safer for everybody with better light.
Criminals hate the light.
LED lighting is much more monochromatic than conventional lighting. It interferes less with astronomical observation.
Where do observe? How close are you to where the lights will be installed?
How much interference do you expect to keep you from oobserving the skies?
This is excellent. I just replaced lights at our house with LEDs
How about reducing the acreage of green lawns everywhere? Plant succulents and other drought tolerant plants all over the city bringing it closer to the natural look. Will save a lot of water and water bills. And reducing water usage is very environment friendly.
yet another.....how about you plant cactus in your yard and stop trying to tell everyone else what they should plant in their yard.
As your messiah Algore would state, the more green space we maintain, the more carbon dioxide is consumed and the chances are non-existant global warming are reduced. But the, you can't fool Mother Nature.....
This is wonderful news and a no-brainer.
Keil, LEDs reduce night sky light pollution.
The new LED lighting at the Swim Center is beautiful to behold.
Just on electricity cost savings. ROI is at 6 years. wish the maintenance cost was also broken out.
I wonder what lawns and cactus have to do with this story.
Well...plants have everything to do with green light...
If you don't green light, how can the greens grow...duh...
These new LED Lights are terrible!! They are not brighter, in fact on my street it is much darker and more difficult to see. It has made our streets less safe.. What a great idea to increase auto thefts.....
People are forgetting that street lights are ment to light up the street, not the street and everyone's house. LED street lights do what they're supposed to and light the STREET. Its up to the home owners to light their own property. Yes they seem darker because it only putting light straight down and not a million directions everywhere.
