What does growing seasons mean?
When most people talk about light pollution, they are speaking of all the ways that man-made light is changing the natural lighting of the environment.
For example, all the lights of a city change the way light and dark fall. There is now no more night out there, and plants or animals that are dependent on that night illumination are compromised. There are other reasons why maintaining natural light is important too.
Why is Maintaining Natural Light so Important?
While science has made great strides in creating ways to illuminate darkness, we now know that changing the natural light of any environment can have devastating effects on the plant, animal and natural life. It can even affect the weather in some cases.
The natural world is set to respond to the sun’s patterns of light. The seasons are a result of the distance of the sun to the Earth. This creates the growing and hibernation seasons that natural life recognizes because most are photosensitive.
The type of light is also a warning as to the climate to come and can trigger natural protections such as the turning of leaves and the slowing down of metabolic systems.
When there is too much light, too little light, or the wrong kind of light present, it can disrupt the natural harmonies and metabolic cycles of lifeforms on Earth.
