    Default Here Comes Worthless Daylight Savings Time Again

    Australian study rebuts Bush II adminstration theory that DST saves energy.

    Studies Cast Doubt on Value of Daylight-Saving Time - WSJ

    That doesn’t mean daylight-saving time has never worked since its introduction during World War I. But, said Mr. Kotchen, “the world has changed. Lighting is a small amount of energy and electricity use in households. The big things are heating and cooling, particularly as air conditioning has become more prevalent. We’re fooling ourselves to continue calling it an energy policy given the studies that show it doesn’t save energy.”

    Instead of getting up an hour earlier or later, people tried to change time. And then they get up an hour earlier/later anyway but now the clock lies to them.

    It's one of the silliest things ever done really.
