In the article “Should Daylight Savings Time Become Permanent” (BTW 2021) I learned that daylight savings started back in the 1900s. The reason this started was to save fuel during world war I. Americans would then have to set their clock back one hour to prioritize the shortened length of daylight during the months of winter. Some legislators want to make daylight savings all year round. But the question is, Should it be permanent? if you said yes these will help you in your argument. Making this permanent will not mess with Americans’ sleep schedules having to change their clocks twice a year. Americans tend to spend less money during standard time than they would during daylight savings time, so would be great for the economy. Now if you feel like daylight savings shouldn’t be permanent, these will help you in your argument. Daylight savings cost won’t reduce energy costs because the majority of Americans use the same amount of power whether day or night. A decrease in worker productivity during past periods of daylight savings has been shown by studies.

Please leave a feedback on thisx
Do you think daylight savings should be all year round? What’s the reasoning for your answer?

Where would I place my statement you ask? i would not be able to stand firmly on either side simply because both sides will require some kind of sacrifice and wouldn’t really know what would best benefit me. However I am very interested in what you think, so feel free to share.

Dear Juan,

I am very interested by your post, “Daylights, Savings, Should It be Permanent” because it’s amazing how daylight savings time started and how we still use it to this day. I also didn’t know that the reason behind this was to save fuel during world war I as well as the pros and cons of this. 

One sentence you write that stood out to me the most was, “Daylight savings cost won’t reduce energy cost because the majority of Americans use the same amount of power whether day or night”. I agree with this because no matter if the time was pushed back or forward the day, would still count as 24 hours meaning that a person would still use up the same amount of energy. 

Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what else you write next because I would like to see the different reasons to a topic and how it could benefit the economy or not benefit.

The history of daylight savings is something I never knew about before reading this, it is very interesting. I like that both sides of the argument are presented equally. I think we should make standard time permanent because of the benefits it will have for the environment and productivity. Here is an article on the benefits of standard time when it comes to sleep:

I liked how you wrote about both sides of the argument. I’ve never really thought about daylight savings so it was cool to read this post. I’m wondering why Americans use less money during standard time. Here’s is an article I recommend as well

I liked how you were able to provide two perspectives on the issue. I think that we should get rid of Daylight Savings because it really isn’t necessary in the modern world.
Heres a really good article that offers the pros and cons of Daylight Savings.

I found it really interesting that you provided points for people both for and against it. Typically, someone picks a side and only writes about that. Personally, I believe we should keep daylight savings. Here is an article I think you would enjoy to learn more about this (and specifically my view):
