Perpetual summer might sound downright pleasant. But it comes at a price. The near-constant onslaught of artificial light has been shown time and again to upset the natural circadian rhythms that regulate many of our bodies' functions. Circadian disruptions mess with our sleep-wake cycles, causing sleep disorders, and have also been linked to depression and hormone disruptions.
