Lights Out in UK, Too?

In relation to the previous post, the BBC has posted an article about an attempt in the UK to save money by turning off some streetlights. This is likewise an austerity move, not conservation of energy. There has been much discussion about the degraded state of electrical grids, and how they need to be upgraded to prevent blackouts. But this is different: There is not enough money to pay for the energy.

Watch these developments carefully, because industrial civilization is coming to a turning point.
