The more daylight we have, the less electricity we use!

Congress may extend daylight savings time.

Congress is considering extending daylight savings time by 2 months, making it begin in March (instead of April) and end in November (instead of October.)

"The more daylight we have, the less electricity we use," said Rep. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts.

How exactly does extending daylight savings time make the sun shine on our side of the planet longer each day? What, are we slowing down the rotation of the earth?

Go Democrats.
