The Irrelevance of Day Light Saving Time
There is a need to establish the cause of daylight savings time and the reason behind its continued existence. This is detested by many farmers, the same who are believed to be beneficiaries of the daylight savings time. The major reason as to why farmers oppose the move to daylight savings time is that there is too much inconvenience when selling their produce to customers who have moved to daylight savings time. There is no greater inconvenience like daylight saving time to farmer. As a consequence, is it not ironical to assume that we need to continue with this bizarre thing in the pretext that we are helping farmers?
The origin of Daylight saving time was in the united states of America. This happened during the World War I. This was aimed at saving the consumption of fuel. This was achieved by reducing the hours that artificial lighting was required. It was not until the World War II that Daylight saving time was observed since not all states observed it throughout the war. World war II has several decades since it ended but we still have Daylight saving time. It is needful to establish the reason behind this.
For an effective alternation between daylight saving time and the standard time, the Uniform Time Act of 1966 provides the framework. This is the framework that is observed in the unites states currently. However, there is a problem with Congress. The Congress has been tinkering with this for some time now. For instance, although it was required to have daylight savings over spring and winter, daylight savings were observed the entire year in 1973. It is important to note that it was only in 1986 when the rules for beginning DST and ending it were standardized. Also, the rules were again changed in 2007. There is need to end daylight saving time.
It is not possible to trace back the origin of the daylight savings to its core. Indeed, it can go far as 1784. This was however not seriously considered until 1907 when William Willet seriously campaigned for it.
As the years go by, there are many misinformed people who have started to support the daylight savings time. There have been supporters of daylight savings time who have been supporting the program and have come up with new reasons for the same.
Daylight saving time does not offer safety but it is fronted as if it offers. Fewer accidents are said to be seen as possible when there are more light hours during the day. However, this may not be the case in reality.
The late evening light is loved by some people and this is a reason they hold on to the daylight saving time. Unfortunately, there is an equal number of people who would kill for the morning light.
