France bans lights at night

by | 5th, February 2013

THE Dark Ages are returning to France. French environment minister Delphine Batho says that from July 1, all non-residential buildings will have to switch off interior lights one hour after the last worker leaves the premises. The outside lights must all be extinguished by 1 am.

This is good news for four groups of people:

1. Burglars.
2. People without curtains – Batho says the darkness will make France a pioneer in helping people’s sleep patterns.
3. Astronomers.
4. Dog owners

Paris’s nickname, La Ville-Lumière, will be updated to something more in keeping with its go-ahead credentials,like Ville de marcher en poo chien or Calcutta…
