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. Later in the year, an hour would be recovered by sleeping an hour later than the normal sleeping time. It was applied efficiently at the time but it has evolved and penetrated the modern world with its own effects. Let us talk about the reactions and effects of the program on the modern society.
First lets revisit the sole purpose of the idea of daylight saving. It was done with an aim of saving energy in the war. Conversely the idea has changed with time. Its purpose has no use due to innovations and sufficient energy sources. The idea was to use sunlight so as to save on other sources of light. However there are other sectors that are affected and eventually using up even more energy. That has led to more problems than solutions.
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 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. More fuel is consumed by vehicles in the evening hours especially in the extended one hour. Despite claims that the government has been aware of the effect since long ago, it has not been convinced to stop the idea of daylight saving time.
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. Medical practitioners have also shown how the idea of daylight saving has affected people mentally and psychologically. 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. People have been against the idea over the years by presenting different petitions. Different means of technology have also been used so as to ensure their voices are heard by the right people. There are numerous websites where people can read and comment against the idea of daylight saving time. It is the right time that the government saw the wide picture and put to end the drama of daylight savings.
