New UK anti light pollution petition
« on: 16:17:20, 13 May, 2016 »
Hi all,

It's a while since I posted but think this is something I hope would be signed by all UK based members:

"Introduce legislation to combat light pollution
Light pollution does not only steal from us our stars, but also has massive negative implications for both people and the environment."

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/119428

Cheers,
Rob  :thumbup:

I've sent it round facebook a couple of days ago too but the more coverage the better.... it was at 2001 when I last looked... would be great to get it to 10,000 !

I have just emailed my member of parliament and asked for his support (Nigel Adams - Selby and Ainsty) and asked for his support - only took 10 minutes so perhaps consider whether you could do the same.  ;)
