Light pollution. Yay. Calling neon lighting an "aesthetic" is very, well, kind. Good thing the government is putting some restraints on their use. Also, LEDs are much more energy efficient

I'm not a big fan of Vox. I won't go there. I will say I was surprised. This is an interesting and informative video as I had first assumed, (You know; "ass-u-me". heh-heh), that they were going to say something about the Chinese government. I guess I spoke to soon. Right after I wrote the above he talks about how government regulations came down on "unsafe" signs through "safety codes". I hate, Hate, HATE the Better Homes and Gardens Gestapo that is Code Enforcement that dictates every part of what you do to your own home. How high fences and hedges can be. Having to get expensive permits to put in a f-ing window. I think you even have to get a permit to re-frame a door in your house. You see these "new" cities being created in places like California. The first thing they do is establish a Code Enforcement office. With Code Enforcement goons preying on people with "eyesores" like a 64 pickup truck in their back forty. What used to be rural areas are now part of the city and subject to fees, fines and every other onerous regulation. So I guess I'm left wondering how much influence the Chinese government has on local government.

Episode 4 is out! Let's see what Johnny got wrong this time. EDIT: Can see no mention was made that HK had more Neon than Las Vegas. That would have helped contextually to understand how much HK had at one point.

led lights can be made to be green lights, so they are better than the environment. Yes the decline of the classic neon sign is sad, but it is unfortunately not a green light, and very difficult to dispose of sustainably.
