Light Pollution Effects
The Homer Glen Village Board passed a resolution in support of Earth Hour, realizing that the night sky is a natural resource and that light pollution interferes with that resource and is becoming a growing problem around the world. By joining in with people worldwide, business owners, village officials and your neighbors, you can make a difference. Turning off non-essential lights helps to reduce the affects of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere for 1 hour.
