Daylight Savings Time

Referring to daylight savings time, an old indian once said: “You can cut a strip from the top of a blanket and sew it on the bottom, but it won’t make the blanket any longer.” That is a lot of wasted effort, and it wrecks a good blanket.

Daylight savings time began in WW I, and resumed during WW II. It was used to advance the war effort. It was a price we paid for our effort to secure world peace. Daylight savings time today is different. It is one of many examples of bureaucracy treating science like a toy, tinkering with humanity. A few policy makers decided it would be fun to have longer afternoons for their golf games and excursions. In an effort to prove their public advocacy, but based on no good science, they claimed it would save energy, and make farmers lives easier. Daylight savings time became, and still is, law in many places. It is a poorly planed experiment that uses human lives as test objects. We are human guinea pigs.

What are the results? There is more afternoon sun for golf. Energy consumption remains constant. Farmers lives are relatively unchanged. Some of the objectives have been achieved. Other objectives don’t get worse. There clearly is some gain, but at what cost.

Research ties the disruption of peoples circadian rhythms to increases in accidents, depression, and suicide. Many modern tools and appliances require time precision and they are temporarily disabled by time change, and many people forget to reset their clocks. All of these things cause immense disruption, not to the “good ol boys” playing golf,” but to people who work, go to school, or take care of children. The cost to children should be considered.

Small children shivering while they wait in the dark for their school bus, Preteens and teens set up for failure by ignoring their natural need for morning sleep, and a society that is too busy to care that this is happening, are teaching our children two unintended lessons. 1) They are so worthless that we don’t care about their feelings, and natural needs. 2) It is acceptable to treat people unkindly.

Policy makers tend to be so detached, that like royalty, they either don’t know, or don’t care about the effects of their demands on underlings. They have decreed that they will change time to make afternoons lovely for golf, and every year time will change to comfortably fit their schedules.
