Once again we are subjected to the tyranny of time change.
By every objective standard, there is no value (economic, social or energy) to this exercise. In fact, the process has been shown by unimpeachable studies to increase energy consumption.

The economic and social impact of this process is undeniable. It is time to acknowledge its idiocy and eliminate it.
