okay so is it just me or do other people drive around at night and looking at a fucking walmart or staples or whatever, and they have all their lights on, even if its closed. what a waste of electricity. i got two reasons for you why this is bad. for the conservatives out there who are tired of relying on the arabs for oil, if we just learned how to fucking hit the switch, we could become such a more energy efficient country. its so simple yet no politician has the balls to advocate for it. and for us skiiers, obviously global warming is a concern. just look at the east coast this year as an example. it looks like fucking mud season. save skiing and the winter and turn off a damn light or too. sorry if this is a rant, just need to get this out there i feel.
I noticed that the other month at my old school. It was the weekend and most of the lights were on at 3:00am.

yeah, they claim it's for security, but there is no way they need them all on.... how about they install better security systems on their doors and windows. problem solved, turn out the damn lights... i want some damn snow.
If I die skiing and anyone sues over it, I will haunt them and all future generations until Judgment day.
my ex gf worked at Ernst & Young in times square. It is a massive building, air conditioning, full lights, and computers on 24/7. I would think its a waste of money but idk what the reasoning is behind it
The winter isnt just bad on the East Coast. nobody really has much snow but that cannot be immediately attributed to global warming. Dont get me wrong i fucking hate people who think global warming is a hoax and that green energy is for communists and hippies but this could have just been a rare weather pattern.
a very very select few of these stores charge solar panels during the day and use those to power secondary lights at night. also, as said, most have people working at night to stock them. i used to watch tesco which is a big supermarket chain in england at 3am when we would come back from going out and there would be trucks unloading and people stocking the shelves, and then at 6am when i was biking down to row i would see people stocking more before they opened at 7
not surprisingly theres a shitload of analysis on 'over-illumination' and after skimming thru it Im even more confused why they leave ALL the lights on. This report (it was from 1992 tho) said that lowering lighting levels by 25% can result in savings of 80%
I remember interviewing for a company that specializes in making buildings more efficent with everything from the lighting to the toilets so hopefully the trend catches on
