Jay Pea, founder of Save Standard Time, debunks the many bizarre, baseless, conspiratorial, libelous, and harassing claims from Scott Yates of Lock the Clock.

Over 15 months, Scott Yates has written at least 28 false or defamatory tweets against my personal character (linked, quoted, and disproved below). He has written two blog posts of 4,000 words that make dozens of false and defamatory claims against my personal character (screenshot, linked, quoted, and disproved below). He has admitted his purpose is to affect my reputation (documented below). He has continually asked me repeated questions, and he has continually refused the answers.


The Chamber of Commerce invented the myth that DST benefited farmers, when they actually opposed it.

Please use this tool from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to tell Congress to stop clocks on healthier Standard Time, thanks! https://aasm.org/advocacy/take-action/

Dear Honorable Legislators,

Please oppose HB-5877 and recommend its amendment to permanent Eastern Standard Time (75°W). Atlantic Standard Time (60°W) is permanent Daylight Saving Time (DST) at Connecticut’s longitude (73°W).
