Changing the clocks is bad for our health:

  • Major mental health
  • More accidents and it has not saved any energy in decades.

It’s no longer really standard as we are on DST for longer then standard time. Regardless, states are currently allowed to switch to Standard time all year long. They can’t choose to be on summer time/permanent DST unless congress acts!
