Posted in: Gov't considers setting clock ahead by two hours See in context

It should be moved 2 hrs. I lived at the same lattitude as a child and it didn't get dark in my country until after 9pm in the summer. Getting light in Japan at 3:30am and being dark at 6:30pm in the summer is crazy.

Our estimate is that households will use 60 to 70% less electricity by 2030, Hiroshi Komiyama, chairman of Mitsubishi Research Institute, told Reuters

What a bunch of crap. This dude is smoking dope. Just look at the trend in electricity usage since it was first harnessed by man. There will forever be more new gadgets, appliances, uses, etc that use electricty. Anyway, reducing your electrical usage is like going on diet, sounds good, but ain't the choice of many for long.
