Summer/Winter clock changes.

Most of the world struggles with changing time an hour in the summer and winter.
From setting clocks, loss of an hours sleep, to missed appointments and more.

Finally, officials are recognising what shift workers have known all along.

It is not needed anymore.


BBC announces an EU proposal to end this practise.


Full article, see link below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-45366390

The EU Commission is proposing to end the practice of adjusting clocks by an hour in spring and autumn after a survey found most Europeans opposed it.
Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said millions "believe that in future, summer time should be year-round, and that's what will happen".
The Commission's proposal requires support from the 28 national governments and MEPs to become law.
In the EU clocks switch between winter and summer under daylight saving time.
A European Parliament resolution says it is "crucial to maintain a unified EU time regime".
However, the Commission has not yet announced details of the proposed change. In a consultation paper it said one option would be to let each member state decide whether to go for permanent summer or winter time.
But the Commission warns that uncoordinated time changes between member states would cause economic harm.
In the survey, reported by German ZDF television, 80% of the 4.6 million respondents called for scrapping the spring and autumn clock change.

Florida passed a resolution to stay on summer time, but similar to the EU, it requires approval from the Federal government before it can be implemented.
