Hi. I’m Stargeezer Jack.
I’m a dark sky kinda guy with eyes for starry skies!
KISS! Keep It Simple, Stargazers!
My Credo: Ask Questions. Seek Answers.
Edward Abbey: “You can’t study the darkness by flooding it with light.”
Time to tack in a different direction. Please follow.
Ah, the universal z-z-z-zound of deep sleep!
Got sleep? No? Why not?
Most people answer with an Addams Family Lurch-like voice and zombie-like look… Aaaaa, LIGHT!
Yes, LIGHT! Sleep-stealing, star-stealing light!
My Dark Sky Pledge
I pledge devotion to the stars of the majestic Milky Way Galaxy and to a dark night sky in which they shine; one cosmos, overhead, clearly visible, with liberty from light and dark skies for all.
Only AIR and WATER keep you alive longer than number three, SLEEP! Not food, shelter, clothing — sleep! Think about it!
Sadly, why do you suppose governments, prisons, etc, everywhere use the torture of sleep deprivation? Because it works!
Light pollution (LP) — the chief thief of sleep — is a symptom of Industrial Civilization, a deadly disease. It sacks sleep, steals starlight, causes cancer, kills critters, wastes $$$… Eliminating LP saves sleep, starlight, money, energy… improves human and ecosystem health, etc.
So, it’s up to you. Run & Hide? -or- Stand & Fight! Me? I’m not a cockroach, so I’ll stand and fight! You? All you have to lose is sleep and the Universe!
So, how much better / worse will you sleep, and how many more / fewer stars will you see in 5 years? 10 years? When will you stand and fight for your right to sleep and see starlight at night?
I fight LP as if sleep, starry night skies, and life really matter. You?
The essence of my bright solution to light pollution, my five-word dark sky credo:
Eliminate Lights That Desecrate Nights
How, Stargeezer? Adopt NLO – Nature’s Lighting Ordinance. NLO! MAKE IT SO!
Whoa, there, pardner! Them’s tough words yer shootin’. What’s this “Eliminate Lights…” guff?
Not all lights, just those that desecrate nights. Children can easily distinguish lights that do and don’t desecrate nights.
Distinguish! Extinguish! Stick a stake through LP’s heart and restore sleep and stars!
Eliminate Lights That Desecrate Nights.
“But Stargeezer, how do we start?” OK, but this is just a start.
A STAR – my five light POOL-lution cues:
A: ADOPT Nature’s Lighting Ordinance (NLO) — Earth’s Official / Original Lighting Ordinance — today. Memorize and proselytize with my Dark Sky Pledge above.
S: SATIRIZE those that [sic] keep lights on! Satire is a potent, powerful, nonviolent weapon.
T: TRANSFORM Be more visible physically, mentally, verbally… Use knuckles. Knock on doors!
A: ATTACK light bullies, SOBs, Satans Of Brightness. They attack your dark skies. Stand up! Stop them!
R: RESTORE dark, starry night skies. Step away from astro-ogres, oops, orgers, and spread the message elsewhere, faster, farther, better. In short…
Organize! Mobilize! Antagonize!
