Did Daylight Savings Time mess up your morning?
It messed up mine.
Do you live in California?
Contact your California assemblyman and state senator to abolish daylight savings time.
- Go to the State Assembly page here
- Type in your address to find your representatives.
- Write a short letter to your assemblyman and senator… It could be as short as “Please support AB2496 and abolish daylight savings time. Thank you!”
Here was my letter:
Please support Assembly Bill 2496 and end Daylight Savings Time in California. It helps no one, saves nothing, and it causes a considerable bother to every person in the state for several days twice a year. It especially bothers my sleep patterns and those of my baby for about a week!
The most popular reasoning for keeping DST is “to save energy”. Here is a study by the University of California’s Center for the Study of Energy Markets offering evidence that daylight savings time does not save energy.
