I completely agree!
In the small hours of tomorrow morning, March 9, the US springs forward into the changing of the seasons, with most states rolling their clocks ahead one hour to take advantage of the longer day. (A handful don’t change.)
This is a terrible idea, Quartz’s Allison Schrager argued when last year’s daylight savings time came to an end. At the time, she proposed an alternate system relying on ideas developed by railroad barons in the 19th century:
It would seem to be more efficient to do away with the practice altogether. The actual energy savings are minimal, if they exist at all. Frequent and uncoordinated time changes cause confusion, undermining economic efficiency. There’s evidence that regularly changing sleep cycles, associated with daylight saving, lowers productivity and increases heart attacks. Being out of sync with European time changes was projected to cost the airline industry $147 million a year in travel disruptions.
