The American Medical Association, AMA, has officially approved the following lighting resolutions. These resolutions are now official AMA Policy:
Resolutions approved June 15, 2009 by the American Medical Association
RESOLVED That our AMA advocate that all future outdoor lighting be of energy efficient designs to reduce waste of energy and production of greenhouse gasses that result from this wasted energy use, and be it further
RESOLVED That our AMA develop and enact a policy that supports light pollution reduction efforts and glare reduction efforts at both the national and state levels; and be it further
RESOLVED That our AMA support that all future streetlights will be of a fully shielded design or similar non-glare design to improve the safety of our roadways for all, but especially vision impaired and older drivers.
Maybe they are wise to the evidence that light at night is bad for human health.
