So they want to extend Daylight Saving Time

So they want to extend Daylight Saving Time for two months to save energy. Discussion about this seems to boil down to three major points.

  1. Daylight Saving is a stupid idea, which causes huge amounts of hassle for many people twice a year, and doesn't actually save any energy as such.
  2. Scrapping - or extending - DST would be unimaginably difficult given the amount of electronic hardware that would need to be modified.
  3. Extending DST would supposedly save America 10,000 barrels of oil a day, or 0.05% of the TWENTY MILLION barrels America currently uses.

Seriously, guys. You want to save energy? Here's a hint: PUT AWAY THE CAR KEYS.
