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.
- 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.
- Scrapping - or extending - DST would be unimaginably difficult given the amount of electronic hardware that would need to be modified.
- 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.
