It can destroy <Speech_Telephony_Male> firefly's <Speech_Telephony_Male> it's a waste of energy <Speech_Telephony_Male> it creates more sky <Speech_Telephony_Male> go. It's it's bad <Speech_Telephony_Male> on all fronts. <Speech_Telephony_Male> So this bill would <Speech_Telephony_Male> establish <Speech_Telephony_Male> some controls. It <Speech_Telephony_Male> would establish some <Speech_Telephony_Male> guidelines for <Speech_Telephony_Male> the department of transportation <Speech_Telephony_Male> and <Speech_Telephony_Male> other things <Speech_Telephony_Male> that that make <Speech_Telephony_Male> the general lighting <Speech_Telephony_Male> environment in our <Speech_Telephony_Male> states a little <Speech_Telephony_Male> bit more environmentally <Speech_Telephony_Male> friendly bringing back <Speech_Telephony_Male> just a <SpeakerChange> few more stars <Speech_Telephony_Male> dividend. <Speech_Male> Do at the status <Speech_Male> of that bill is. I imagine <Speech_Male> it probably got put <Speech_Male> on hold with all the <Speech_Male> pandemic <Speech_Male> measures <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Telephony_Male> in fact it is <Speech_Telephony_Male> <hes> right now sitting with <Speech_Telephony_Male> a committee and <Speech_Telephony_Male> drank committee <Speech_Telephony_Male> within the state house. <Speech_Telephony_Male> We're awaiting a public <Speech_Telephony_Male> hearing <Speech_Telephony_Male> which will be coming up. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Probably within about <Speech_Telephony_Male> a month after the <Speech_Telephony_Male> summer recess <Speech_Telephony_Male> And <Speech_Telephony_Male> again one of the <Speech_Telephony_Male> things that makes bills like <Speech_Telephony_Male> this really successful <Speech_Telephony_Male> is citizens <Speech_Male> support. So <Speech_Telephony_Male> since we're dwelling <Speech_Telephony_Male> on that call <Speech_Telephony_Male> your legislator your <Speech_Telephony_Male> your house rep or your <Speech_Telephony_Male> senator <Speech_Telephony_Male> Say you support the dark <Speech_Telephony_Male> sky. Bill asking <Speech_Telephony_Male> them to become a co-sponsor <Speech_Telephony_Male> and of <SpeakerChange> course to vote <Speech_Telephony_Male> for when it comes to the <Speech_Male> floor. That's <Speech_Male> great <Speech_Male> I was struck by <Speech_Male> something. One of our producers <Speech_Male> pointed out to me <Speech_Male> amanda beland <Speech_Male> in preparing for the segment. <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> sent me a <Speech_Male> an article kind <Speech_Male> of talking about this idea <Speech_Male> that we've <Speech_Male> been stuck for the last <Speech_Male> year and a half in this really <Speech_Male> heavy place. <Speech_Male> Nature can kind <Speech_Male> of provide <Speech_Male> a sense that life is <Speech_Male> still continuing <Speech_Male> to move on <Speech_Male> and that looking <Speech_Male> at the stars can help kinda <Speech_Male> give you that sense. <Speech_Male> <hes> <SpeakerChange> <Silence> what do you make of that. <Speech_Male> Oh gosh <Speech_Telephony_Male> she's absolutely <Speech_Telephony_Male> right. I mean one of the <Speech_Telephony_Male> things that happened in the pandemic <Speech_Telephony_Male> is people were stuck <Speech_Telephony_Male> at home awesome <Speech_Telephony_Male> with children and <Speech_Telephony_Male> you know board bored <Speech_Telephony_Male> to tears <Speech_Telephony_Male> and they suddenly discovered <Speech_Telephony_Male> that they could go outside <Speech_Telephony_Male> at night. Look up <Speech_Telephony_Male> into the sky and <Speech_Telephony_Male> rediscover the <Speech_Telephony_Male> sky. The stars <Speech_Telephony_Male> and <Speech_Telephony_Male> and in fact <Speech_Telephony_Male> telescope manufacturers <Speech_Telephony_Male> across <Speech_Telephony_Male> the country ran <Speech_Telephony_Male> out of telescopes <Speech_Telephony_Male> at least the entry <Speech_Telephony_Male> level telescopes <Speech_Telephony_Male> because there was such <Speech_Telephony_Male> a demand for them during <Speech_Telephony_Male> the pandemic. <Speech_Telephony_Male> absolutely <Speech_Telephony_Male> people should <Speech_Telephony_Male> You know re <Speech_Telephony_Male> re acquaint <Speech_Telephony_Male> themselves with how <Speech_Telephony_Male> beautiful the night sky <Speech_Telephony_Male> is. I'm <Speech_Telephony_Male> deep into astronomy. <Speech_Telephony_Male> And i tell people astronomy <Speech_Telephony_Male> doesn't have <Speech_Telephony_Male> to be hard. It can <Speech_Telephony_Male> just be beautiful <Speech_Telephony_Male> and just gazing. <Speech_Telephony_Male> It's milky way <Speech_Telephony_Male> on a summer night <Speech_Telephony_Male> with your <Speech_Telephony_Male> best friends or family <Speech_Telephony_Male> at your side <SpeakerChange> is <Speech_Telephony_Male> all you could ask for <Speech_Male> always willing to <Speech_Male> boldly go where no one has <Speech_Male> gone before.
