Conversation of Things #2 - Dr. John Barentine and Preserving The Night Sky

My super-smart and longtime friend Dr. John Barentine from the International Dark-Sky Association joins me to talk about how lighting affects the night sky and the health and well-being of both humans and many other species across our planet. Whether it’s too much blue light that we’re staring at during nighttime hours or the over-abundance of light in our cities, light pollution is a real thing and the IDA is working to educate the public on how to reduce it. We also chat about how smart lighting from the home automation world is making its ways into cities and street lighting, along with what the future holds for lighting beyond the current LED revolution.
