Daylight Savings -- NOT!
Daylight Saving Time is upon us again this weekend. As you set your clocks forward one hour, ponder this: The Wall Street Journal reports on a definitive study showing that the change to Daylight Savings Time results in increased electrical usage. So why are we changing to Daylight Savings Time even sooner this year? Could it be because of the utility companies and energy traders who lobbied for the earlier change? Also, California is about to deregulate energy once again. Remember the last time we deregulated energy? The people who made billions from the last go round have lobbied again.
