Daylight Savings- no joke for the environment!

On April Fools Day, I claimed that Korea had adopted Daylight savings and people should put their clock forward an hour. Its a good thing Korea hasn't switched to Daylight Savings:

You may have noticed that March of this year was particularly hot. As a matter of fact, I understand that it was the hottest March since the beginning of the last century...As you know, Daylight Saving Time started almost a month early this year. You would think that members of Congress would have considered the warming effect that an extra hour of daylight would have on our climate. Or did they ? Perhaps this is another plot by a liberal Congress to make us believe that global warming is a real threat.

Found here (I am willing to believe this is a late entrant for an April Fools letter). Actually, that is a link to the newpaper this claim was written in. I found it on Catshark's blog and he linked to the angry astronomer who goes into detail about how and why it is so very foolish.
