During the world war, a tactic was suggested to save on energy use. It involved altering the normal time of waking up. All the watches were changed to read an hour behind. The hour was to be reclaimed after sometime in the year by sleeping an hour later than the normal time. The tactic was effective at the time however it has become a culture with its own effects. Let us look at some of the effects of the trick in the modern era and the reactions from different people.
First lets revisit the sole purpose of the idea of daylight saving. The major aim was to save on energy in the course of the war. Conversely the idea has changed with time. Its purpose has no use due to innovations and sufficient energy sources. The implementation involved waking up an hour late so that the sun would be up and people to use sunlight rather than other light sources. The idea has resulted in the excessive use of energy in other sectors of the economy that has resulted in consumption of more energy rather than saving the energy. It has therefore resulted in more inconveniences rather than effectiveness.
Another sector that has been seriously affected by the daylight time saving is the transport sector. As a result of the idea, in the airports, people are forced to wait for long or even delay travel plans. Time synchronisation has been affected all the way to the technology business. In a long time, the petroleum industry has been adversely affected as a result of the time daylight time savings. In the extra hour, vehicles are observed to consume more fuel. It is claimed that the government has been aware of the idea since long ago but has not given in to the pressures of stopping the daylight savings.
Other sectors of the government have also presented their reports with an effort of bringing to an end the practice of daylight saving time. The petroleum sector, the medical field and the technology sector are some of the most affected areas by the culture. According to medics there are some mental and physical disorders that are as a result of the daylight saving time. Some of the disorders are heart attacks and increased suicides.
So as to end the daylight saving time, several reports have been presented to the congress. The energy department has defended the practice using several research result presentations. Different people in the society have been constantly presenting petitions against the idea of daylight saving time. Different means of technology have also been used so as to ensure their voices are heard by the right people. So as to get the feedback of other people as well as to get the information about the effects, websites have been developed. It is the right time that the government saw the wide picture and put to end the drama of daylight savings.
