So, interior China and the whole of Mongolia are in the same boat? It's like they only bother lighting their borders!

That's the Gobi Desert.


And Gobi is getting larger!

Best Korea is decades ahead of us in addressing the problem of Light Pollution. We should be applauding them, not laughing at them.

Clearly a gross distortion from the imperialist Nazi American media. Electricity is widespread and plentiful in Best Korea.

Lightbulbs not so much.

Egoy3k: Old_Chief_Scott: make me some tea: On the bright side, at least they appear to be conserving energy better than the rest of us.

Yep. Very small carbon footprint.

Producing (burning) and then burning charcoal for cooking and heating is the exact opposite of sound environmental policy..


I think for that to be the case, Best Koreans would have to actually eat

dr_blasto: Actually, if you don't have any energy, you're not likely to save any. Now, you can avoid wasting energy by not having any, but you still can't save what you don't have.


"But if you don't already have any of it to begin with, you can't get any of it to get started which means you really have no idea how to get it in the first place ... do you?"

Nice.

Post Apocalypse night skies will be beautiful.  Something to look forward to.


I'm working on it.

Do you have any idea how expensive anti-matter is?

scottydoesntknow: MrEricSir: It's also worth noting that South Korea has more than twice the population of North Korea. Usually you don't light up unpopulated areas at night.

Pennsylvania is roughly the same size in square miles (PA is 500 sq miles smaller) with half the population of Best Korea.

Here's Pennsylvania at night:

So I have to chose between living in Pennsylvania or North Korea?

I'm thinking, I thinking.........
