The whole reason we are supposedly doing Daylight Saving Time is because it saves energy. Turns out the study they're using is a few decades old. Meanwhile, Australia chose to extend DST a couple of months for the 2000 Summer Olympics. Guess what? They didn't save energy. In fact, there was an energy increase.
Will someone please just kill Daylight Saving Time, or at least make it permanent so we don't have to keep changing our clocks and dealing with patching computers, cell phones, and everything else that's got a clock in it? Please?
