Additional LED upgrade to address light pollution!
There have been widespread concerns within the city, region, and globally, about the paradoxical worsening of light pollution due to LEDs. These lights, while more efficient, are also dramatically brighter blue light, which shines far beyond the intended "cone" range, into homes, backyards, and, most concerning, into the sky, marine areas, and natural areas. Such light pollution is more than just a nuisance, but an incredible waste, while further fragmenting "core habitat" in natural areas, as light goes deeper (and again, bluer) into these habitats. The issue of blue and bright light can be remedied immediately, as these advanced systems should have capability to change their hue to redder/orange colours (as widely recommended), as well as dimmed, with minimal impact on lifespan (with cost savings, reduced pollution, and less stress on human/plants/animals). Further reductions in light pollution must be taken on all installations through physical modifications to the structure, most likely with the addition of "reflective cone" coverings, which only direct light downward, up to a 45 degree angle in any direction, as well as the reduction of some light poles, in areas where they are too densely located (shifting these resources to areas where there are too few, or saving the infrastructure for future replacement as needed).
In conclusion, I would like these concerns and recommendations to be publicly addressed before any further LED infrastructure is installed without proper research on the impacts, and adoption of best practices.
