So as to reduce the amount of time spent during the world war, a tactic was applied. That involved changing the time the people rose and started their duties. 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 practice has evolved and affected the modern world as well developing into a culture with its own demerits. 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. It was done with an aim of saving energy in the war. The objective of the idea has faded over time on the other hand. Plenty energy sources have deemed the need for the idea pointless in the modern world. 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. The final result has been more demerits than solutions in the end.
Daylight savings has also influenced the transport sector. Air travel for instance, people are forced to wait or delay flights as a consequence. 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. Vehicles are observed to consume more fuel in the evening especially on the extended time. 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.
Several people have tabled their complaints to the congress so as to end the daylight saving time. The energy department has defended the practice using several research result presentations. However, each year, there have been many petitions against it from different people in the society. So as to ensure their message gets to the right people, modern means of communication have been used. There are numerous websites where people can read and comment against the idea of daylight saving time. It is now time the government heard and put an end to the circus.
