I am all for signing petitions but also remember that actions speak louder than words. i.e tell everyone turn off all those un-needed lights! (I even know a few astronomers who leave their house/hallway/kitchen lights on needlessly, then have a moan about light pollution later!), we are all guilty.
.. And the growing problem of 'electromagnetic pollution' is to me even more scary!

Subject: (meteorobs) National Dark Sky Day Petition (OT, but perhaps not)
While not directly related to meteorobs, light pollution is increasingly
hindering observers and casual skywatchers to enjoy dark skies, an important
and most interesting part of which are meteors. Take a look:
even if a single signature is like a drop in the ocean, in time perhaps there
will be enough drops - either from this petition or from other efforts in
reducing LP - to make a change.
