How to Deal With Daylight Saving Time

10 March, 2019, 09:42 | Author: Rachel Logan
  • Daylight Saving Time adjustments could lead to health risks, studies say

"Effective immediately after federal law authorizes the state to apply year-round daylight saving time, the standard time within the state shall advance by one hour commencing at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of the March following the effective date of the federal authorization".

On Sunday, March 10, 2019, nearly all the clocks in America will "spring forward" for Daylight Saving Time at 2 a.m.

"As we get ready to change our clocks and lose one hour of sleep on Sunday, we must be tired of the negative health effects of this practice", Chu said in a statement Friday. The moves come in the wake of a vote in the Florida legislature past year to adopt daylight saving time year-round.

DST was instituted during WWI but abandoned soon after only to be revived in 1942 by President Franklin Roosevelt, again in an effort to conserve resources during a world war.

Germany is credited with enacting the first daylight saving time policy in 1916 to save energy during World War I, according to Time magazine. U.S. Congress officially expanded it by four weeks in 2005. Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands all decline for the same reason as Hawaii: The closer you are to the equator, the less seasons impact the length of your day. DST also causes more reports of injuries at work, more strokes, and may lead to a temporary bump in suicides.

According to BC Hydro, the majority of British Columbians are uncertain about the objective of Daylight Saving Time.

Standard time returns November 3, unless Congress acts on Florida's request before then. In that scenario, Alaska would be two hours off of Washington's proposed Mountain Time all year.

Premier John Horgan has said more people ask him about abolishing the time change than they do on any other issue. However, most people in Arizona and Hawaii already don't change their clocks. Its roots go back further than that though.

Lawmakers in several states have filed legislation to do away with falling back. On Sunday, Floridians should set their clocks forward an hour. This week, Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott as well as Rep. Vern Buchanan reintroduced the Sunshine Protection Act, which wants to implement Daylight Saving Time all year.
