Daylight savings time 2013 in USA is ending 3rd Nov and fall back time begins at 2AM in the morning as is the practice twice a year

Daylight savings time 2013 is ending in USA on 3rd Nov. This is going to be a time when you are required to move your clock back by one hour and you are literally forced to do so. No, nobody comes to actually force you to move it back, but if you don’t do it, you end up losing a lot as everywhere you are going, you will get the schedules wrong, miss the train, bus, tube and everything else.

Till the idea is not officially done away with even the most staunch opponents too will not be able to miss the clock being moved back as without it they cannot actually live. To be true even if they have to oppose the daylight savings time in different forums and courts they will have to be on time and for that they have to keep their watches and clocks on time.

If you have to be on dot when daylight time ends on November 3 you will have to move the clock back by one hour. Daylight savings time is ending at 2 AM and the questions about its any perceived benefits have begun once again. But before we take you forward in this discussion please move backward your clock by one hour, otherwise your schedule may go topsy turvy and you may end up being late almost everywhere. Since the practice of the daylight saving time began, there have been disagreements among policymakers about its actual benefits. Even common people feel that it is simply useless to think of any benefit accruing to anyone by just setting our clocks backward or forward on a certain time. If they want to save energy they need to educate people about the benefits of saving energy and actually adding a new chapter on energy conservation in our schools may be a better idea.

Our country is among the most developed nation of the whole world. But instead of scrapping this dated idea, the government has continued with this practice in post-modern world. In a third world country in sub Saharan Africa, this idea may get some people to agree with its usefulness but certainly not in America. Daylight saving time (DST) is a decades-old tradition, but many suspect that it “does nothing more than create a nation of groggy and confused citizens,” says Deanna Gillen at PolicyMic. Sometimes ago there was an “End Daylight Saving Time” petition on the internet by some disgruntled Americans who wanted to end this nuisance. But apparently this was not high on people’s minds so it didn’t get enough backers to get White House act on the issue.

As far as the history of daylight savings time is concerned, the idea of daylight savings time is really very old and began before the beginning of the second wave of modern world. To be true it began when repression was common in the guise of wartime legislations. Daylight saving was first introduced by European countries during World War I and most parts of the US fell in the trap in the year 1918 and their argument for joining the daylight saving time was that it helped conserve energy.

Though there are many people who are opposed to the daylight savings time there are many others who favour it. As far as the argument that daylight saving time saved energy, experts believe that it is pretty useless argument. Experts are unanimous that this is no more true. It’s pretty much “useless” in this respect, says Deanna Gillen. While more sunlight does encourage people to use less electrical lighting, they tend to crank up their air conditioners when they get home from work in the summer months, and run their ACs longer. When Indiana implemented DST in 2006, the state’s electrical costs jumped by as much as $14.5 million per year. There are data to prove that daylight saving time actually increases the consumption of energy in many parts of the United States. So whether you love it or hate it, you have to follow the dated practice.
