Light pollution has been a problem for awhile. People like having the street lit up enough to be able to walk or bicycle without lights but don't want the yard lit up, especially at soul searing levels like vapor lights. You'd know that if you listened to people instead of lecturing them on what you've decided they want/need.
The best thing about LEDs is you can have more of them to light small areas where you want some light instead of having to carpet bomb the whole area to get light where you need it. The net result is using a lot less juice and not having the hedges growing night and day.

Don't like it? It's great!

I only don't like it as an excuse not to have governments combat climate change, because it itself benefitted and is benefitting from just such a government program.

In fact, I like it so much that, even if they don't break even financially, selling the fuel they make, but they do do well enough ecologically I would support strong government subsidies to build them up.

Likewise the Swiss company.

So that is your feelings. Where is the research that says less light? It does not exist. And that was a point in that IEEE Spectrum article. Despite your reasoning, the amount of light generated and the amount of power used for lighting just keeps increasing.

Clark Griswold demonstrates a trend confirmed by research. Only speculation (contradicted by many decades) assumes this trend will reverse.

Guessing. They know how much power I'm using, not a clue what I'm using it for, I could be reanimating corpses for all they know.
The population has been increasing, more households more power but not necessarily on lighting, probably farming bitcoins.
Trump will stop those terrorists from coming over the Rio Grand and using wasteful incandescent bulbs.

Rite now it's 46 and raining. The snow and ice are melting, and you can hear the ice on the river making noise.
