Will the Green House at MSI be green at night?
Via Chicagoist comes news of a green house exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry for springtime. I have to ask a serious question: if after all the work creating this low-energy house, will they light up the outside poorly (by poorly I mean by lighting it to excess and waste to the sky) to advertise it and destroy the night environment? Here at the U of C, we've squandered any savings during the Battle of the Bulbs and such by increasing the nighttime lighting by 1000% (this number is accurate) in the last year.
