There was a tactic developed during the world war in an aim to reduce the amount of energy consumed. It involved altering the normal time of waking up. All clocks were reversed an hour behind. The hour was to be reclaimed after sometime in the year by sleeping an hour later than the normal time. It was applied efficiently at the time but it has evolved and penetrated the modern world with its own effects. We shall look at the use of the program in the modern society and reactions from the 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 idea was to use sunlight so as to save on other sources of light. Some sectors of the economy however have been affected by the idea resulting in usage of more energy than the energy saved by using sunlight. The final result has been more demerits than solutions in the end.
The transport sector can also attest to the effects of the daylight savings. Air travel for instance, people are forced to wait or delay flights as a consequence. Time synchronisation has become difficult affecting the technology industry as well. The petroleum sector also shows some effects attributed to the daylight saving time also. In the extra hour, vehicles are observed to consume more fuel. The government has not been convinced to stop the culture of daylight saving time despite being aware of these effects.
Several stakeholders have done their research about the effect of the culture of daylight savings and have presented their findings with an aim at ending the daylight saving program. Some of the sectors affected include the technological department, the petroleum industry and the medical sectors. Medical practitioners have also shown how the idea of daylight saving has affected people mentally and psychologically. Some of the effects reported have been increased heart attacks and suicide cases.
So as to end the daylight saving time, several reports have been presented to the congress. The energy department has also shown the merits associated with the act of daylight saving. However, each year, there have been many petitions against it from different people in the society. They have even used modern forms of technology to ensure their points are heard. 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 now time the government heard and put an end to the circus.
