    Those who would turn the lights off are our enemies.Those who would turn the lights off on others are our enemies. If our stupidity causes the weather to turn off the lights, then we are our own enemy.

    Did you connect your weather station to your light switches again?

    Not a fan of light pollution myself. I would rather see the night sky.

    Clarification?
    Is "turning the lights off" a metaphor? Or are you literally meaning turning the lights off?
    If the latter, why is it bad?

    "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time", British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey remarked to a friend on the eve of the United Kingdom's entry into the First World War.

    It's a metaphor for the end of something. Civilization, industrial age, whatever.

    In reply I would offer Samuel Clemens: "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."
