Daylight Saving Is a Waste of Time

Daylight saving time was introduced to reduce power consumption. This is definitely not the case. Records show an increase in electricity consumption immediately after the clocks were moved forward. This is due to people knocking off work early to spend more time doing pleasurable things in the evenings - according to the experts. There is indeed a multi-million dollar opportunity cost involved.

Just to change the clocks takes a great deal of time and expense. It is estimated that the average person spends ten minutes putting clocks and watches forward an hour. This can be doubled when time has to be moved back in the autumn.

Worldwide, as many as 1.5 billion people practice daylight saving, whether they want to or not. It is a case of the majority being herded like sheep through a gate they do not want to go through by a minority who say we know what is good for you. The concept was strong in the days when families rallied round the dinner table then went out into the garden to play ball. It quite irrelevant today. When the light fades in the evening artificial lighting is turned on, in many case automatically, in public buildings and shopping centres. Few spend the lighter evenings sitting quietly in the garden. Most are inside playing computer games.

It is time people woke up from this malaise based on times gone by. People go anywhere at any time in the current age. Why do people put up with a mistake based on outdated tradition?
