THE DARKNESS MANIFESTO Our Light Pollution, Night Ecology, and the Ancient Rhythms thst Sustain Life

by | Read by Owen Findlay

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Owen Findlay gives an arresting narration of this timely audiobook, which explores the damaging impact of light pollution upon the world's ecosystems. In an impassioned tone, Findlay conveys Swedish researcher Eklöf's proposals for less artificial light and a more authentic daylight to darkness ratio. The potent effects of the 150-year history of artificial light upon the circadian rhythms, mating habits, and food procurement protocols of many species, including humans, is set forth in persuasive detail. At times, Findlay's long pauses add a note of theatricality, which conflicts with the tone of the text. But his resonant voice is pleasing to the ear, and his clear enunciation and ease with French, Italian, and German words are impressive. In all, a powerful argument for making small changes to create a more natural world. M.J. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
