Daylight savings is a practice that involves adjusting the clock forward with one hour during summer and reverting during winter. This practice was started in the old days with the aim of using the daylight by having longer nights. The process was started with an aim of saving fuel. Following are the reason why we need to abolish daylight saving.
As mentioned above the main purpose was to save on fuel consumption. The reason for this was because fuel was scarce in most regions hence the need to save. Also fuel had to be saved due to the challenge of transporting the fuel to different parts. Today, unlike the old days more fuel is been discovered in various parts of the world hence means that fuel availability is no longer a challenge. Today technology has changed which has lead to improvement on machinery that is used to process the fuel at the same time makes transportation to various parts convenient.

During time shift it’s a challenge to doctors and nurses to calculate the exact time to administer the nest dose to the patient. This affects the wellbeing of the patients due to either delay or earlier administration of the drug to the patient and also affects healthcare system. This can lead to health deterioration of the patients who are affected by the time shift. Airplane time of departure has to be delayed during time shift. This leads to loss of revenue since most of the business that was meant to be conducted at that time has to experience delay awaiting time shift.
