Utilities: Daylight saving time switch hasn’t cut energy use

USA Today is reporting that “daylight saving time switch hasn’t cut energy use“. My previous blog entitled Changing daylight savings was a bone-head move seems to be well justified, huh? Two things bother me about the article. One, it says, “That may come as no surprise to the Energy Department, which last year predicted modest energy savings because the benefits of the later daylight hour would be offset.” So the experts predicted it was meaningless and they went ahead and made us do it anyways! Fckin idiots!

The second part that bothered me was this: “Congress will evaluate the effects of the earlier switch to daylight saving time.” This implies that they might switch it back! Jeezus!!! They are beyond fckin idiots!
