DST Link...

I'm not completely sold on the idea of the extended DST next year, but here's the explanation... Click HERE. It sounds like some tree-hugging stuff that will really not make a difference in energy consumption....

I do know this though... next year DST will start in March and end in November. Do you buy it? Will it really help? Feel free to comment... I may blog more about it tomorrow.

It's always hard to get used to for the first few weeks, but other than that, I don't care either way about Daylight Saving Time. (I just read in your link that there's no s at the end of saving.)

All of the stats in the link are from the 70's, so it's about time to reevaluate how much energy DST saves today.

Did you read the part about the first person to have the idea? It was Ben Franklin. He was always so ahead of his time!


p.s. Why you be hatin' on trees?

No I dont buy it. No it wont help. Time is a fixed spot in space and cant be changed. We will continue to consume as much if not more energy as we have in the past. I say leave the time alone and lets Bar-B-Q

I've always hated DST. It's one the things I really loved about living in Arizona.

As for the extended version saving energy consumption? I seriously doubt it'll make one bit of difference. I mean, people will still be coming home from work and having dinner, etc. whether it's light or dark outside. *rolling eyes*
