Every spring and autumn we have one hour. The same applies to 2019:
- Summer time in 2019 will begin on the night of March 31st. The clock moves one hour from 2:00 to 3:00.
- The standard (irregular winter) time of 2019 appears on the night of October 27th. The clock moves from 3:00 to 2:00.
Standard time is time in winter. Therefore, the term "winter time" is not completely accurate, it is called a standard or normal time.
Summer time is a special time that deserves a seasonal mark. Real winter time, i.e. Seasonally shifted in winter compared to standard time, it was only short in our country in 1946. This year, the difference between summer and winter time was two hours.
But it seems to be the change of time in the European Union will end. Last year a survey was carried out, in which 84% of 4.6 million respondents answered that they were facilitated. The European Commission has therefore sent a proposal to the European Parliament and the Council to repeal it. Then I could pay for a one-off year, and it would probably be a summer based on public research.
Why is time changing?
Changing time was introduced mainly for saving electricity. Because of the change, daylight is available for a long time during normal day-to-day human activities, which reduces the need for shining with artificial light. This adjustment has a positive effect on the human psyche and its biological rhythm, but the process of changing time itself seems to be negative.
The summer time was first introduced during the First World War. Electricity was expensive and rare during this time, but when the sun shone later in the evening, it was achieved significant energy savings.
The summer time is valid for the whole of the European Union and other countries around the world, including the United States and Canada. In the European Union, the change in time is always consistent and applies in all countries on the same day last Sunday in March and October.
In other countries of the world, the dates of change in the times vary, for example in the USA the summer time begins a little earlier and ends later than in Europe. Interestingly, the change in time also occurs in the southern hemisphere of the Earth, but vice versa. In the winter season, they have summer there.
Interesting: If the time does not differ for an hour
The summer time brings confusion to the time zone orientation. Luckily, this is the time of the change. But do you know that there are areas in the world where time moves only with his parts?
India's standard time, for example, applies to India. It moves for 5 hours compared to UTC and 30 minutes. What about Australia! When it's 8:00 in the west, the clock is gradually showing up to the east: 8:45, 9:30, 10:00, 10:30.
Similarly, the time is changing in Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea, Sri Lanka, Newfoundland, Canada for half an hour. In 2016, Venezuela moved 30 minutes ago time. It was here for energy reasons.
In the territory of today's Czech Republic, the summer time began in the Austro-Hungarian Empire for the first time, but later it was abolished and re-established for several years. The last time was the summer time introduced in 1979 under the former Czechoslovakia and since then it has been held to date.
Canceling the summer time
Today, energy reasons for changing time are already questionable. Lighting is now only a minor part of energy consumption, and the timetable for electricity consumption varies greatly from the century. Energy (including the Czechs) argue that the change in time practically does not affect the consumption of electricity.
In addition to the loss of energy aspects, there are other arguments why the summer time should be abandoned. One of them is the impact of a change in the time on a person who can cause health problems. The statistical change in time is shown, for example, due to the fact that traffic accidents always increase soon after the change of time.
The European Commission voted for citizens to keep their summer time on vacation. And how did it go?
"Dueling" or "preservation of time rotation" we have claimed:
