The effects of light pollution on our lives are both direct and indirect. The direct effects of light pollution on our lives are the increased cost of electricity, increased energy consumption, increased pollution, and more prolonged and more intense sunlight. For example, a study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that when people have more light, they are more likely to become sloppy in their own work. They also found that people who have more light do not get enough sleep, and that when people have more light, they are more likely to view the dark environment more negatively. These documentary studies have shown that it is people who live in areas with high light pollution who are more likely to be unhappy, with an increased risk of developing diseases such as obesity and type II diabetes.
It is then indirect effects of light pollution that we will have to continue to pay for. After the negative effects of light pollution, there are also the direct effects on our daily lives. People in locations with high light pollution are more likely to experience nightmarish sights and sounds, such as fires and riots. Additionally, people in locations with high light pollution are more likely to experience negative side effects, such as more anxiety and depression.
Ultimately, light pollution is a problem that needs to be addressed. It can be seen as a resource crisis, as it takes a lot of energy and resources to light up the sky. We need to find ways to reduce the amount of light that is used, and at the same time, make sure that the light doesn’t pollute the water supply. realized that it is more than just lighting up the sky. It was also eating up valuable resources, such as oxygen used in humans’ respiration and among some animals. Therefore, it is important to take account of the entire resource equation when light pollution is considered, not just the impact on the sky.
