Gary Day, reviewing Do We Really Need the Moon? ("Satellite in my eyes", 10 February), mentions that the government might abolish the Moon on a strictly utilitarian basis. I believe that this would be wrong and that the Moon is extremely valuable since it shines at night when it is dark and we need it.
A better candidate for abolition would be the Sun, which shines during the day when it is light and we do not need it.
This action would also solve global warming at a stroke and is to be recommended.
