Early Daylight Savings A Bust In Power Savings

Other then forcing millions of people up earlier in the morning, the promised energy savings from moving to an earlier onset of daylight savings time, has had NO measurable energy savings benefit.


Another "brilliant" republican idea. When will we learn?

I have had a couple of emails from individuals who are wondering if that is me in 'sleepy' mode.

Nope - just a photo off google images!

I scooped the media on this one, by 2 years.

saskboy - do you have a link?

No big surprise - it didn't work when Nixon tried it in the early '70s either.

Looking around my home, the bulk of my power consumption comes from things like my furnace, and a couple of computers that I never shut down.

All of the light fixtures I use are fluorescent, and only draw a minimal amount of energy.

It's not just that it's another "brilliant" republican idea that rankles - it's the fact it is a recycled idea that's really sad.


Saskboy that is a good post. I agree with you totally on this topic.
