Daylight Savings Time, What is the Logic Behind it?Submitted by realman2020 on Sat, 03/09/2013 - 12:19
Daylight savings time begins again March 10, 2013. Why do we need to move ahead the clocks a hour? We are told we will lose a hour of sleep doing this. We set the clocks back a hour in the fall. We will gain a 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 a hour. The earths rotation does not go back a 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 a hour or move ahead a hour. After much time thinking about daylight savings time. I am still trying to find the logic behind daylight savings time.
