Clock -changing doesn’t seem to accomplish much. Honestly, there’s not enough electricity saved to warrant it. Lifestyles have changed since Franklin’s “early to bed…” philosophy was facilitated by changing the clock. All the electricity “saved” is ultimately wasted by turning the lights on earlier in the evening and keeping them on longer into the night. Bottom line, nothing much is gained except maybe by those who find it easier to put the kids to sleep when it turns dark early and,not to mention them in the same breath,those intent on street crime.
