Competent studies prove that daylight saving time increased mean household electricity usage in Indiana.
We estimate a cost of increased electricity bills to Indiana households of $9 million per year. We also estimate social costs of increased pollution emissions that range from $1.7 to $5.5 million per year. Finally, we argue that the effect is likely to be even stronger in other regions of the United States. (emphasis mine)

    We should talk about this come Thanksgiving or Christmastime. Will you be home for an extended period of time for either? (I assume so for Christmas.)

    I’ll try to salvage this throw-away reply with one tidbit I learned the other day: Arizona is now the new state that everyone associates with being anti-DST. D: The void Indiana so famously left behind was snatched up by Arizona, man. Arizona.

    Gives a whole new unintentional meaning to AZNightwatch “Nightwatch Nazzy”, don’t it? XD
