According to a recent study by the University of California has determined, beyond a shadow of a kilowatt, that daylight savings time doesn't work, unless you count making people grumpy from lack of sleep. In fact it was found that daylight savings time actually COST Indiana residents an extra $8.6 million in electricity bills due to more air conditioning in the evening and more heaters on cool mornings. Per Professor Matthew Kotchen, who pioneered the study, "I've never had a paper with such a clear and unambiguous finding as this."
Also in the article was mention of a study in 1976, three years after most of the nation began DST, which found "no significant energy savings after the switch."
But by all means, let's ignore the goals of DST, goals that this study has shown are actually thwarted, and continue this trend. Why? Because like a liberal, excuse me, progressive policies, they just make you feel good. Kids, as long as you feel like you're doing a good thing it doesn't really matter if you are in actuality doing harm. That's our lesson for today.
