What can we do to keep dark skies dark? In this talk, Bob Mizon from the Commission for Dark Skies explains why minimising light pollution is important not only for stargazing but for our health, biodiversity, the battle against energy waste and slowing climate change. Unlike the elimination of fossil fuel products from the atmosphere, the solution is simple!
