Almost time to set those clocks back! Is Daylight Savings Time a necessary construct or a old fashioned folly?
Standard time is the one we should trash. Keep us on DST all year round.
I really wish they'd get rid if it!! It just makes no sense at all. Go to work in the dark or come home in the dark. Either way we spend part of the day in the dark. Seems to me it would be better to have more light in the evening.
I'd be happy to see it go, and I haven't seen much argument to keep it.
So am I. As amateur astronomer, I don't want to wait longer for nightfall in summer. Also, whatever energy is saved in the evening is consumed by early risers who also need light.
I feel we still need it as no one likes waking up in the dark or going to sleep in the light.
If it stays light late enough that it's still light when you go to bed, you aren't getting up in the dark because it's summer.
