Daylight Savings is a Crock!

It should come as little surprise to anyone who has thought about it, but now there is scientific proof: daylight savings time wastes, not reduces, energy.
In Indiana, daylight savings was previously observed by 15 of the 92 counties, creating a lot of confusion when your neighbor’s clock was an hour off from yours. The legislature thus passed a law mandating daylight savings throughout the state, and researchers took the opportunity to study the law’s effect on energy usage. The result? Residential electricity usage increased between 1% and 4%, amounting to $8.6 million a year.
