So as to reduce the amount of time spent during the world war, a tactic was applied. That involved the change of time of getting up by all the people. 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. The tactic was effective at the time however it has become a culture 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. The major aim was to save on energy in the course of 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. However there are other sectors that are affected and eventually using up even more energy. It has therefore resulted in more inconveniences rather than effectiveness.
Daylight savings has also influenced 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. There has been claims that petroleum industry has been affected for a long time. 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. Some of the most affected sectors by these practice are the technological department, medical field and petroleum sector. According to medics there are some mental and physical disorders that are as a result of the daylight saving time. Suicide cases and heart attack conditions have also been reported to increase.
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. 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. The government should now heed to the petitions and put an end to the practice of daylight saving time.
