Tonight, our country goes back on “Daylight Saving Time“, with the exception of most of Arizona, Hawaii, and a number of territories (including Puerto Rico). As long-time readers know, I don’t like changing the clocks twice a year, and I wish we would just pick one time and stick with it. I don’t care if it is Standard, Daylight Saving, or even Greenwich Mean.
Slowly, if not entirely surely, people are moving toward getting rid of changing their clocks twice a year. There is even a Twitter hashtag #LockTheClock and a website devoted to it. And 31 states and a number of countries are considering bills to stop the madness. Most of these states are advocating to stay on Daylight Saving time year round, and that’s fine by me.
There is plenty of hard science showing that changing the clocks costs both money and lives.
