Many of you know that daylight savings time is going to be extended by a full two months this year, starting on March 11 and ending November 4. Lots of states seem to be doing their own thing, but overall, the change is supposed to save 100,000 barrels of oil. Since we use about 20 million barrels a day, I figure that's about .0013 percent, only 1000 times more efficient than black Google.
Of course, none of the computers will like this; you will pretty much have to patch every OS, piece of hardware, and software suite that you own. Here's some more help. Something to do this Spring, but here's my point; changing the time on millions of Americans and computers is within our framework for change, but mandating, say, CFC bulbs in every household is not (except for California.) Why is that?
