During the world war, a tactic was suggested to save on energy use. That involved the change of time of getting up by all the people. All the watches were changed to read an hour behind. Later in the year, an hour would be recovered by sleeping an hour later than the normal sleeping time. The practice has evolved and affected the modern world as well developing into a culture with its own demerits. Let us talk about the reactions and effects of the program on the modern society.
Foremost is the purpose of daylight time saving. The major aim was to save on energy in the course of the war. Conversely the idea has changed with time. However, courtesy of the many innovations contributing to numerous sources of energy, the objective of the idea has become void. The implementation involved waking up an hour late so that the sun would be up and people to use sunlight rather than other light sources. However there are other sectors that are affected and eventually using up even more energy. The final result has been more demerits than solutions in the end.
Daylight savings has also influenced the transport sector. As a consequence, in the airline business, people have had to delay flights or wait due to the confusion. There is a major issue with time synchronisation even in the technological industry. 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. 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. According to medics there are some mental and physical disorders that are as a result of the daylight saving time. Some of the disorders are heart attacks and increased suicides.
There have been several reports and complaints reported by the different stakeholders involved 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. So as to ensure their message gets to the right people, modern means of communication have been used. 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.
