In the decade following the first leap second, President Reagan understood that we also had need to adjust the starting date for Daylight Saving Time.  Now in 2007, D.S.T. is being altered again in the U.S., thanks to the Energy Policy Act of 2005.  Only this time both, the starting and ending dates, are being stretched.
 
Note that, according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_Policy_Act_of_2005,
"Even supporters of the bill concede that the bill will do little to lower oil prices immediately, and that any changes the bill has enacted will not happen overnight."
 
Is this really an energy-saving measure?  Or is this more evidence that the U.S. government is preparing for longer days ahead caused by Global Slowing?

Addendum:
 
The fact that our time standard gets adjusted through energy bills reveals an obvious link to Big Wind's successful lobbying efforts.  Not only does the U.S. government freely grant subsidies to build and operate wind farms, but also it seems Big Wind has convinced the government to mask the lengthening days by shifting the start of the day.  They are doing this well in advance of the inevitable day when the public might begin to take notice, so as not to arouse suspicion.
