"By synchronously resetting all clocks in a region to be one hour ahead of Standard Time (one hour "fast"), individuals who follow such a year-round schedule will wake an hour earlier than they would have otherwise; they will begin and complete daily work routines an hour earlier, and they will have an extra hour of daylight after their workday activities. However they will have one less hour of daylight at the start of each day, making the policy less practical during winter."
A few years ago I had to get up before dawn and go outside in dark or near dark conditions to do a job involving reading from and writing to papers I carried on a clipboard. As winter passed by, the sun came up earlier and earlier, and what a great relief this was! But then, one day, no more light. Daylight "savings" time plunged me and my job into cold and darkness again.
When is this policy ever practical, and for whom?
Exactly WHAT do you need the extra hour of daylight for? It's pretty obvious that this has to do with outdoor activities. Is it for doctors who need an extra hour of golfing time after seeing their 10 patients for the day? That's just pure selfishness.
If it serves a purpose for farming, then I have an idea for farmers - get up an hour early (which is what you end up making us all do anyway), and leave us non-farmers alone. As for doctors' offices and clinics - you can do the same thing, if improving your golf games is so damn important to you!
