But no, it is all psychological, man!  Imagine -- last week or so
i even saw a scientific study abstract fly by which wanted to
convey the impression that there is a difference in between real
sunlight and the good bulb, neon or LED lights?  1200 Lux i think
German workers have to have, isn't that sufficient???  (I have not
read it, it was that aggressive modern times teaser that was
saying this.  Mind you -- i am out _whenever_ i can.)  Having said
that, US has DST permanently for over 120 years, has it, and it
was no good for climate nor environment, no matter how many
fingers they point somewhere else.  If it is all psychological.
