Light Pollution Is Getting Worse Every Year. That ’s Bad For Your Health
Nothing has captured the march of wealth and progress like any society’s ability to light up the night—first with campfires and torches, then with gas lamps, finally with incandescent lights. Franklin Roosevelt’s 1936 Rural Electrification Act was an effort both to bring modernity to the 90% of American farms that lacked electricity and to help jolt the American economy, which was still deep in the Depression.

Blog: Time to stop FE cuts and invest in education
There are few things that can benefit someone more than education. To learn, gaining fresh experience and knowledge, is something that benefits both the learner and the whole of society.
