Paul Bogard: 'Know Darkness'

Paul Bogard

Our world grows ever brighter. Generally light is considered to be good, and darkness bad. But what do we lose if we banish darkness? Paul Bogard shows how the brightness endangers our environment and is bad for human health. Light pollution takes away one of the defining experiences of our culture, an experience that connects us to the world and the universe. And he argues that we should neither ignore nor avoid the metaphorical darkness; we should go outside and come face to face with darkness.
