So as to reduce the amount of time spent during the world war, a tactic was applied. It involved altering the normal time of waking up. All the people changed their clocks reading by an hour backwards. 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. The major aim was to save on energy in the course of the war. Conversely the idea has changed with time. Its purpose has no use due to innovations and sufficient energy sources. The purpose was to wake up late when the sun is already up and save on light energy required in that hour. 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. It has therefore resulted in more inconveniences rather than effectiveness.
Another sector that has been seriously affected by the daylight time saving is 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. 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.
Several people have tabled their complaints to the congress so as to end the daylight saving time. Through several research presentations, the energy department has defended the idea of daylight saving. 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. Several websites have been designed to ensure the information is accessed by many people and to get the feedback of others as well. It is now time the government heard and put an end to the circus.
