Daylight Savings Needs to be Abolished
It is needful to ask ourselves when daylight saving time (DST) started and why it still continues. 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. Daylight saving time has got no usefulness to farmers. 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 sought to address and reduce the consumption of fuel. This was to be achieved by the reduction of the need for using artificial lighting. However, not all the states observed the Daylight saving time throughout the war until the World war II. World war II has several decades since it ended but we still have Daylight saving time. There is a need to know why this has to be so.
For an effective alternation between daylight saving time and the standard time, the Uniform Time Act of 1966 provides the framework. In the united states, this framework has been observed. The Congress however has an issue with this. Indeed, Congress is always tinkering with the time. Take for example 1973, where daylight saving time was in force the entire year, and not just the spring and summer. It is important to note that it was only in 1986 when the rules for beginning DST and ending it were standardized. These were to be later revised in 2007 where the daylight savings start on the second March Sunday. This justifies the fact that daylight savings time needs to be done away with.
Trying to trace back the origins of the daylight savings to the core is a nut to chew. It has been said that the history can be traced back to 1784. However, the most serious crusader of this was William Willet in 1907.
As the years go by, there are many misinformed people who have started to support the daylight savings time. These supporters have devised new reasons for supporting the daylight savings time, not paying any attention to the original reason for the day light savings time.
Safety comes as a “reason” for daylight saving time. Fewer accidents are said to be seen as possible when there are more light hours during the day. It is possible that this is not the case in an actual sense.
daylight saving time is also loved due to the love many people have for late evenings. However, there are equal numbers of people who love the morning light.
