The following letter was published in the Arkansas Democrat, written by a concerned citizen to the editor:

global warming

I won’t spoil this gem with a lot of commentary. I have no idea if this is sarcasm or not. It’s in a paper called the Democrat, so it could be supporting the joke, or displaying the ignorance. I just…don’t…know. I just…hope it’s not real.

thanks to this blog for having the actual newspaper clip.

    The paper must have come up with the title. She doesn’t seem like one to use the word exacerbates. But I could read the title going both ways.

    You know–she could actually be on to something. That extra hour means people will be driving around on average for an extra hour longer taking advantage of the light. There are plenty of statistics to show an increase to retail revenue as a result of this early switch. So all that extra emission could add to the problem.

    Maybe her problem is articulation and not stupidity?

    google the author’s name on the newspaper’s site, it looks like she sends tongue in cheek letters like this often

    It turns out the whole Daylight Savings Time change was a bust. It didn’t produce the resulting “power saving” that they hoped it would. Someone please explain to me why we still have this archaic thing in the first place. What a nuisance.

    You say it’s a joke? I’ve never been more relieved.
