Is it Time to End Daylight Saving Time? – Screamin’ Scott
Most people I know dislike the twice-yearly time reset. Many believe that changing the clocks is an old outdated practice from wartime that has more negative than positive results.
According to one study, 7 out of 10 Americans today do not want to change their clocks and think it’s a bad idea. According to another 2022 study, 6 out of 10 Americans would stop fooling with the clock.
New studies show the effects on the heart. Did you know the risk of a stroke is higher just two days after the time change? So why do we still do this two times a year? Sure, this weekend we get an extra hour of sleep, but who takes advantage of that anyway.
The Senate unanimously passed the Sunshine Protection Act, which, if approved by the House and signed by the president, would make daylight saving time permanent. So, in November 2023, daylight saving time would be the new standard time. For all of us, that means later summer sunsets and later sunrises. But as per government red tape, nothing ever seems to get done. So maybe in my lifetime, we could see a chance at being normal to the Sun and Moon. And not mess with the clocks anymore or a Lions Super Bowl, whatever comes first.
