Why Everybody Should Join The Petition To Abolish Daylight Savings
The benefits of daylight savings fronted by its proponents has been effectively been discounted though it has been observed for a long time. There is no veracity in the allegations of any economic and social benefits of the practice that the people supporting its implementation. It is therefore a great relief when the petition to abolish the practice has been brought forward.
It beats all logic for people to be in support of the daylight savings system when there are no evident gains to be derived from it at this time and age. This concept was actualized back in the days of World War two where there was erroneous allegations that if people slept for longer hours, we are bound to experience greater power savings. The extension of the night time resulted in increased movements of people thereby making the consumption of fuel to be higher.
Daylight savings lost its intended purpose because as people spent longer time indoors, they have to use more energy in conditioning the temperatures in their homes. This in effect led to an elevated usage of energy in powering the air conditioning systems. People will also tend to use other items that run on electricity more when they spend more of their time inside their houses.
International airlines companies are in the frontline opposing the system of daylight savings as it has visited on them untold inconveniences. There has been an increase in the level of interruptions on their travel arrangements. Clients using the services of these airline companies have experienced increased inconveniences as well. In effect, this has a negative impact on an airline’s efficiency and profitability.
It has been proven that the practice of daylight savings has similar effect on people the same way jet lag affects travelers after a long duration in a flight. This has led to the number of road accidents being on the rise resulting from dysfunctional drivers. Companies have been negatively affected as there have an increase in accidents on their premises.
It has been scientifically proven that the implementation of daylight savings is not only an irritation but will adversely affect your health. The case includes cancer and stroke which have reportedly showed increased rates after exposure to the system. People have also attested to more depression related cases, abnormal sleeping patterns and curtailing of our bodies’ metabolic mechanisms.
Children that are attending school are on the receiving end of daylight savings. Since they have to wait for school transport in darkness, they are exposed to a lot of safety risks. The learning process of the children will experience considerable impediment. People are forced to adapt to processes that are in contrast with their bodies’ natural mechanism.
