Paul Bogard: The End of Night

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - 2:30pm

Two thirds of Americans and Europeans no longer experience real night. Light pollution from numerous malls, parking lots, streetlights and sports fields  have bleached our night sky so that we can only see a tiny fraction of the stars that are above us every night. Very few people can now see the Milky Way. But this is not just an aesthetic issue. All this over lighting is costing us with surprising negative health effects, high energy bills and horrible environmental consequences. But what can be done?  Tune in to Inquiry tonight, when we talk with PAUL BOGARD who teaches creative non-fiction at James Madison University. He talks about his important new book THE END OF NIGHT: SEARCHING FOR NATURAL DARKNESS IN AN AGE OF ARTIFICIAL LIGHT.
