Light Pollution references

This page has been created to help shed some light on the ever-increasing problem of light pollution foster environmental activism against this assault on our nighttime environment.  

Here you will find Phil Harrington's Master's thesis that studies the problem from an energy-management/conservation standpoint as well as a copy of the initial legislation passed in 2007 by Phil's town of Brookhaven, New York.

Additional resources and links will be added often.  So, if you are in the process of waging your own war against light pollution, consider bookmarking this for future reference.
