Ok I've been watching Doomsday or Armageddon week on History. They actually said that "Global Warming" maybe due to earth's wobbling and we are close to the 13,000 or 26,000 year shift. We are really close to the farthest tilting angle (move 1 degree every 72 year). Showed the stars and stuff and got me thinking.
What about having 2 times a year around 10 or 11pm at night (summer), 8 or 9pm (winter) to turn off as many lights as possible for 1/2 hour so people can see how many stars there really are.? Enough time to drive out enough of most cities since can't turn off all the lights. Maybe different dates in other parts of the country to pick the best dates for there viewing angles (if it matters).
I was thinking the other night that once we had almost all cars driving on the road with LED headlamps (it will be many years). On highways we could just have the lights off. They would still have them if you break down, motion detectors or something else. If on a motorcycle maybe just have to push a button on it. Expensive to have all of this so wouldn't happen for a decade or so if they are already planning on updating to energy efficient stuff.
