Best of R4R: Dirty Air and Bright Lights

This resource examines the impacts of bright lights and other intense uses of electricity on air quality and human health. Given the widespread practice of 'holiday lighting' at this time of year, students will reflect on their own values and practices as they develop and promote an energy use policy.

Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF) was founded in 1991 to promote, through education, the knowledge, skills, values, perspectives, and practices essential to a sustainable future!
