Clear as day­light

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

I had a laugh when I read that day­light sav­ing was caus­ing the drought (“Blame day­light sav­ing”, Let­ters, 15/9).

Is it that clear that we are ma­nip­u­lat­ing the clock, not day­light hours? Day­light sav­ing saves money on en­ergy and al­lows peo­ple to be pro­duc­tive much later into the day and not at 4.30am, when most of us are still asleep.

Also, there is still a sig­nif­i­cant drought in Queens­land.
