Permanent Daylight Saving Time

There will be no more falling back in November come 2023.

Senate passes bill to make Daylight Saving Time permanent in 2023 - CBS News

I like it but I’m sure some people will think it’s a bad move.

Honestly, in Europe, most people are fed up with time change.

Polls have shown a very broad support for a fixed time. but Europe is Europe.

Incidentally, USA changed time same time as most countries, but the dates have been moved for business reasons !

Personally, I wish the time was left at sun time and not Daylight Wasting Time. I like getting up in the morning and the sun start rising before 7:30/8 am. I like it to be dark by 9 or 9:30 pm, not 10 pm. I really hate DWT.

Not quite. There are two more steps.

This is true. It still needs to pass in the House. I hope it fails because I do not want DWT to become the new normal time.

Personally, I prefer when i am the nearest possible to the solar time.

Mostly, I am fed up with the change itself.

I do admit, backyard stargazing does have to start late during the summer.

Same, but the whole charade is irritating. I can do without afternoon darkness in winter.

That’s what I mean by sun time. As the sun moves, that is the time. Noon is directly overhead, which we generally do during the winter months. I just want that year around.

If they go to Daylight Wasting Time, you will have afternoon darkness in winter.

There wouldn’t be afternoon darkness where I live. Earliest sunset would be nearing 6PM.

DST bill goes to House:

But it’s unclear when – or if – the lower chamber will take up the legislation as leaders punt the effort to the back burner in favor of other pressing matters, including responding to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
