By Christopher Burdett”This is a game changer,” said Andrew Hargreaves, a lecturer at the University of Sheffield.
“It’s the most significant change to light output in a few decades, and the first one that’s really been tested on a commercial scale.”
The new lights are designed to give consumers more choice.
“The whole idea is to give people the choice of lighting up with the same lighting, the same colour,” said Mr Hargraves.
“There’s also the option to have a variety of light sources, different lights.
It’s a very powerful new way of doing that.”
It’s not just about Christmas lightsBut the CO2 light show is also about light-changing, because it will be an opportunity to test the impact of a major change to our lighting.
CO2 is the third most important greenhouse gas in the world after carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide, with emissions increasing every year.
“Lighting is an important part of human experience,” said Dr Andrew Higgles, a lighting expert from the University the University Of Edinburgh.
“People spend a lot of time lighting up the Christmas tree and the lights on the house.”
This Christmas light spectacle will also help scientists understand what’s causing the warming.
“What we are seeing is a major global change,” said Professor Matthew Leakey, an ecologist from the Australian National University.
“In the tropics, the CO 2 is very low, in Australia it’s much higher.
So what we’re seeing is that CO 2 emissions are increasing at a rapid rate.”
So, why is CO2 warming?
“It’s caused by human activity, it’s caused to the atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels,” Professor Leakeys told Business Insider.
“If we don’t do something to slow down the CO, then we’ll have to go back to the way things were.”
He said that the climate would change and people’s ability to enjoy the season would be impacted.
“The atmosphere is going to be warming, there’s going to become more dust and there will be more water vapor, and there’s more heat, which will be a problem for us,” Professor Higgys said.
“It will be like a winter wonderland for us.”
But that won’t be the case if the lights aren’t changing.
“We’ll see the lighting change to suit the season,” said Prof Higges.
“But we won’t see that as a climate change issue.”
It will also have implications for the environment.
“If we keep increasing CO2 levels, we’re going to create more greenhouse gases, and we’ll be emitting more CO2 into the atmosphere,” he said.
“So we’re not going to have as much warming as we should be.”
The lights are now up and running for the season, but how will the lights affect our Christmas celebrations?
“There will be some people who will be able to enjoy it, because the lights will be warmer,” Professor Mark Higgins, a climate scientist from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology at the Australian Institute of Marine Science, told Business Wire.
“Others will be affected by it.
It could have an effect on tourism, but we’ll see.”
He added: “It will affect Christmas markets and other events, and it could affect people in areas where people are going to come out and get a bit of a glow.”
He believes it’s a good thing the lights are coming to Christmas, but that some things will change.
“You’ll have a bit more sunshine,” he told Business Week.
“But there will also be changes in other things like lighting for the trees and the tree lighting.”
We’ll probably see a lot more Christmas lights being installed in other parts of the country.
“What we’re looking at is a lot like the Victorian Christmas light changes that were introduced in 2013.”
In that case, there were some people in Victoria who didn’t want to get into the Christmas light and it was difficult to get rid of them.
“He predicted the changes will be temporary.”
They’re going back to a Victorian setting, and they’re probably not going back for a long time,” he explained.”
That’s what we can’t predict.
“What do you think?
Do you want the CO-spewing lights to be removed or replaced?
