加州在規劃廢除日光節約時間

加州在規劃廢除日光節約時間:「California could drop Daylight Saving Time」。

A California lawmaker has introduced a bill to unshackle the Golden State from the horological chains of Daylight Saving Time.

主要是沒有實質效益,甚至是與當初預期的反效果:

Daylight saving time is observed in about 70 countries worldwide, but its benefits are the subject of much debate. While studies in the 1970s argued that it reduced energy usage, it’s no longer clear that’s the case. A 2011 study in Indiana found that electricity use rose in the state as a result of daylight saving.

中止日光節約時間 (Daylight Savings Time) 的請願...

在「Petition the White House to eliminate daylight saving time」看到有人直接到白宮請願網站上請願中止每年需要調整兩次時間的「日光節約時間」:「Eliminate the bi-annual time change caused by Daylight Savings Time」。

請願者認為,以現在的觀點來看,這實在太擾民了... 而發起還不到一個禮拜,就有兩萬人請願了,來看看接下來的進度... XD
