Daylight Savings Time, What is the Logic Behind it? It is coming Next Month Again
February 16, 2013 in Offbeat
Daylight savings time begins again March 10, 2013. Why do we need to move ahead the clocks an hour? We are told we will get an extra hour of sleep doing this. We set the clocks forward on hour in the spring. We will lose an hour of sleep. Either way the clocks going forward or back. We lose no sleep nor gain any sleep. I wonder how did the idea of daylight savings time begin. When I look at it. We save no time at all. What is the logic?
When the clocks go back an hour. The earths rotation does not go back an hour. The sun rises and sets regardless what the time it is. The earth’s orbit around the sun does not change. Life goes on if we roll back the clocks an hour or move ahead an hour. After much time thinking about daylight savings time. I am still trying to find the logic behind daylight savings time.
