Why is light pollution an issue that needs to be solved right now?

Negative Impacts on Humans

Light pollution has multiple negative impacts on human health. Exposure to artificial light at night can disrupt our sleep patterns, leading to a range of health problems, including obesity, diabetes, depression, and cardiovascular disease.
