Daylight Saving Time—Here’s Why You Really DON’T Want It Forever
The end of daylight saving time (DST) is this weekend and it may be the last time you have to set your clocks back an hour. There are some people who want to make DST permanent. It sounds great right? Not necessarily.
(DST) will officially end this Sunday morning as you set your clocks back one hour before going to bed. This will allow us to enter back into standard time for winter. You can expect the sun to set a whole hour early after the change. And as we move closer to the winter solstice, daylight will shorten.
There's a bill awaiting review by the U.S. House of Representatives that would make next year's "spring forward" the last time we do. The bill is called the Sunshine Protection Act. If the U.S. House of Representatives approves the bill, it'll make its way to the President.
It's getting opposition from many Americans who want DST to be the forever standard instead, #locktheclock.
