Daylight Savings Time: Stop the Madness!

Despite the wet dream fantasies of the maniacal green machine, Daylight Savings Time DOES NOT save energy.  In actuality, the science is showing that pushing the clock forward an hour each Spring leads to MORE energy consumption especially as the warmer weather approaches and with it the increased demand for air conditioning.  And the negative effects of this outdated time deviation on people’s physical and emotional well-being has been documented for years.  Studies show that moving the clock forward messes with people’s sleep patterns, raises the risk of heart attacks, and causes more car accidents and work injuries.  Since it now only covers one-third of the calendar year, Standard Time has become a national joke.

So as you drag your weary bones from your beds this Sunday morning and curse the coming of Monday when you must face the work week with your Circadian rhythms all-a-flutter, take comfort that you are not alone in your bleary-eyed contempt for the Daylight Savings scam.

    What’s with the ads on WordPress? YUCK!

    • WordPress runs ads on any of the blogs hosted by them unless you pay them a fee not to. And they’re getting more aggressive with it. When you add up all the fees they charge (to run your domain name, to insert videos in posts, to have adequate storage space for photos, etc) it starts to add up and you realize that their ‘free’ blog hosting is a bit of a misnomer.

    I live in Arizona where we don’t not participate in this scam. LOL! It does however affect my TV schedule because now my national shows are on an hour earlier.
