Reasons for the Daylight Savings Time Petition
Daylight savings time is a practice that has been here for a very long time and is still being practiced by various regions in the world. Daylight savings time is the changing of time to function differently one hour forward and another one hour backward during different seasons. Primarily, this was a practice during the World War I. It was introduced, then as people fought because it was meant to help save on energy use as it was a rare commodity. This is a practice that continues even today, with many people claiming the different benefits of these properties.
Regions that practiced daily savings time today enjoy some benefits such as less artificial light. There are many industries that enjoy the evening daylight such as the tourism industry but also people that enjoy evening activities can benefit a lot from this practice. The issue of energy-saving and DST is a very controversial topic today because some nations say that it is effective while others tried to prove it not to be true. After long research, there are many people that have come up to petition against daylight savings time because they are proving the cons of this practice is and why it should be abolished.
One of the studies done shows that daylight savings time increases the use of energy unlike the previous intention of having this practice. There are many reasons why DST was very effective in those days in saving energy, but now because technological changes are there, the DST is no longer effective in energy-saving. Everyday and every night people will use energy sources to operate different technological devices and whether there is daylight or not, there is no change and that is why daylight savings time is not making sense in this generation. The other reason why people are petitioning again is the DST is because it is causing sicknesses that sometimes a long-term and this should be avoided. When there’s an hour, shifted backward or forward, people will be denied one hour of sleep and that causes a lot of changes in the body such as increased metabolism, increased levels of stress, change of mood and other things. The same effect of lack of sleep is being felt by many businesses when it comes to the quality of work, employees cannot achieve. There is always reduced productivity when it comes to employees because one hour of sleep makes a lot of difference to beginning the strength and also relaxing the body for the next task. There are many other reasons why the petitioners are rallying against daylight savings time because it is no longer effective in saving energy as it was meant to achieve during the world war.
