    Troll gate open. Might as well hear from a few eco-crims.
    That's great! We have very dark skies here, which are being threatened by a proposed launch center built on the shoreline of Superior. Needless to say we NIMBYs have risen with one voice and said no way. So far it's just talk although the state gave the association behind it a few million to "study" the issue.

    two words in that article perfectly describe the lunacy of leftie mentality...........'light pollution'
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    We live in a 24 hour world.

    Keeping cities dark at night is one of the most stupid things that I've ever heard proposed.

    What we really need to do is put limits on procreation for population control like the Chinese did and should never have stopped doing.

    Why is it stupid? BTW, they don't mean 100% dark. They want to reduce light pollution.
