The arrhythmia helps to increase mental illnesses, such as depression, leads to poor performance among working people, weakens the immune system and stresses schoolchildren in all age phases in their ability to learn. In addition, it as been proven since long that the time change rather inflicts economic damage than to bring any benefit. The train and flight schedules must be changed ... the arguments are all known.
The normal time is the time that unites man and nature. An artificial time shift from winter to summer and back, ensures that we are tired in school and work because we have to adapt again. This time difference is only shortsighted beneficial to people, because in order to stay healthy, psychologically stable, less hungry, more agile, etc., we need to sleep to the rhythm throughout the year. For no one it is right to get up, be it sooner or later.
So: Please take the initiative and ensure that the changeover will be abolished and everyone in Europe can live healthily in the rhythm of nature.

Warum ist das wichtig?

Die Rhythmusstörung trägt zur Erhöhung psychischer Erkrankungen bei, wie der Depression, führt zu Leistungseinbußen bei berufstätigen Menschen, schwächt das Immunsystem und belastet Schulkinder in allen Altersphasen in ihrer Lernfähigkeit. Darüber hinaus ist bereits längst erwiesen, dass die Zeitumstellung eher einen wirtschaftlichen Schaden anrichtet, als irgendwelchen Nutzen zu bringen. Die Bahn- und Flugpläne müssen umgestellt werden... die Argumente sind alle bekannt.
Die Normalzeit ist die Zeit, die Natur und Mensch vereint. Eine künstliche Zeitverschiebung von Winter zu Sommer und zurück, sorgt dafür, dass wir müde in die Schule und zur Arbeit gehen, weil wir immer wieder uns anpassen müssen. Diese Zeitverschiebung ist nur kurzsichtig von Vorteil für den Menschen, denn um Gesund zu bleiben, psychisch stabil, weniger hungrig, agiler etc. benötigen wir den Schlaf im Rhythmus über das ganze Jahr. Für keinen Menschen ist es richtig, mal früher, mal später aufzustehen.
Also: Bitte werden Sie initiativ und sorgen dafür, dass die Zeitumstellung abgeschafft wird und alle Menschen in Europa im Rhythmus der Natur gesund leben können.

I'm annoyed and I signed for sure; Danke Patricia!

welche "Zeit" auch immer abgeschafft wird, Hauptsache weg damit, damit dieses unsägliche hin- und her endlich aufhört und man wieder normal leben kann. Als ich noch arbeiten musste war das jedes Mal eine Tortur für mich...

Daylight saving time (DST) is the biannual event when we forget whether to put our clocks one hour back or one hour forward, and whether this means we’ll get some extra sleep or not.

In the UK, clocks go back one hour this Sunday – the 26 October – at 2:00am, marking the end of British Summer Time (BST). It means that we end up having a 25-hour day.

It also means that in the UK we’ll be back on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and sunrise and sunset will be about one hour earlier this Sunday than the day before – so there will be more light in the morning.

If you’re forever confused about which way the clocks move and when, an easy way to remember is the saying: “Spring forward, fall back.”

Why do we do it?
The modern idea of daylight saving time was first proposed in 1895 by English-born insect specialist and astronomer George Vernon Hudson.

Hudson did shift work and during his leisure time he collected insects, so valued the dear moments of his daylight after-hours. He proposed a two-hour daylight saving shift and presented it in a paper to the Wellington Philosophical Society.

In his abstract, Hudson proposed:

“To alter the time of the clock at the equinoxes so as to bring the working-hours of the day within the period of daylight, and by utilising the early morning, so reduce the excessive use of artificial light which at present prevails.”

Yet Hudson’s ideas were not followed through, and it fell to British builder William Willett in 1905 to raise the issue of introducing DST again. Willett’s idea was more complex and he suggested setting the clocks ahead 20 minutes on each of the four Sundays in April, and switching them back by the same amount on each of four Sundays in September – a total of eight DST switches per year.

However, Willett’s daylight saving plan caught the attention of Liberal Party MP Robert Pearce who introduced a bill to the House of Commons in February 1908. The first daylight saving bill was drafted in 1909, presented to parliament several times and examined by a select committee. However, the idea was opposed by many, especially farmers, and the bill never made it into a law.

It was during the first world war that Germany became the first country to implement DST, on 30 April 1916, in order to save fuel for the war effort. Thereafter, other countries followed suit and the concept was adopted by Britain. DST was first used in the UK on 21 May 1916.

Why is it controversial?
The debate about how we should set our clocks has been going on since standardised time was introduced with the expansion of the railways in the 1840s. Historically, proponents of DST have argued that it saves energy, promotes outdoor leisure activity and is good for economic productivity. It has therefore received support from retail businesses and urban workers, who benefit from having lighter summer evenings. Some groups who prefer lighter mornings, like farmers, argue that the economic benefits of DST are unproven and that we should just stick to GMT all year round.

Campaign groups advocate keeping DST over the winter months and putting the clocks forward a further hour during summer, giving the UK the same time zone as much of central Europe.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has argued that lighter evenings would reduce the number of accidents, while environmental campaign group 10:10’s Lighter Later campaign says that the move would “save almost 500,000 tonnes of CO2 each year, equivalent to taking 185,000 cars off the road permanently”.

The issue has been put to parliament regularly over the years. In 2010 Conservative MP Rebecca Harris tabled a private member’s bill that would require the government to conduct an analysis of the potential benefits of putting the clocks forward for a further hour for all or part of the year.

The idea was opposed in part because of the effect it would have on areas of Scotland and Northern Ireland, where the sun would rise as late as 10am and children would have to walk to school in darkness. David Cameron said he would consider the proposals seriously, but ruled out having different time zones within the United Kingdom.

Jedes Jahr der selbe dämliche Mist - Die Schweiz weigerte sich damals noch jahrelang gegen diese unsinnige Zeitumstellung - Danach passten sich auch unsere vor der EU den Bückling machenden Eidgenossen, wie sollte es anders sein, dem Schengener Abkommen an.
Ach Ja, unterschrieben und geteilt.
Every year the same stupid crap - Switzerland refused then for years against this senseless time conversion - After that, the main, the bow fitted, before the EU make forming, Swiss confederates how could it be otherwise, the Schengen Agreement on.
Oh Yes, signed and shared.
