Daylight Saving Time: ‘Fall back’ continues despite questions about benefits
POSTED 8:56 PM, OCTOBER 31, 2015, BY CNN WIRE
DENVER — Ready or not, Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday.
Loved by some, loathed by many, our biannual clock twirling ritual has wide-ranging and often surprising implications.
From energy use to our very health, here’s a look at some of the mythology and facts surrounding DST.
It doesn’t seem to be a huge energy saver
One of the most commonly offered rationales for Daylight Saving Time (yes, it’s “Saving,” not “Savings”) is the presumption that by extending summer daylight later into the evening, Americans would use less energy.
It was the reason Congress used in enacting Daylight Saving Time during World War I and again after the United States joined WW II, according to author David Prerau.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to hold true.
A 2008 U.S. Department of Energy study reported Daylight Saving Time reduces annual energy use by about 0.03%. And a study that same year from the University of California-Santa Barbara found it might even increase energy consumption.
Sucks working tonight, have to be here another goddamn hour.
people still own clocks that have to be manually turned back?
I use my phone as the main clock and alarm clock....I'll let it do the work. My watches on the other hand....
I have a stove clock, other than that I'm good.
Damn I miss AZ.
I hate it with a passion. I've screwed myself so many times by either showing up early or late to work. I always forget.
Thank goodness I seen this thread. Just changed all of my clocks.
i had to google this
it was hard to believe it was tonight
i'm banking my hour until I really need it...
maybe when i'm nose deep in some blondes sweet tasting pussy, i'll set old father time back 60 minutes
See, now it's 1 am again.
Don't think that's up to you.
Now we can drink longer tonight.
it's stupid but I like it. I need little milestones throughout my year and this is one i'm used to and look forward to.
I don't get people whose systems and routines apparently can't handle the change. an hour shouldn't be fucking you up that badly.
I defy all modern time constraints, I am now on black people time. man of the people I am.
Yes, things were built before you became self-aware two years ago.
