Daylight saving time in the US – level 2
Some US politicians want to make daylight saving time permanent. Still, it is not clear yet that it’ll happen, as the government and President Biden must agree with it.
Daylight saving time means that people set their clocks one hour forward in spring, and they set it one hour back in autumn. It means that there is less sunlight in the morning and more sunlight in the evening. The result is that people enjoy more sunlight in summer.
People don’t seem to want to change their clocks twice a year. Several polls showed that around 75% of Americans didn’t want to do that anymore. Still, they didn’t agree on which time that they would prefer, daylight saving time or standard time.
Difficult words: permanent (something that lasts for a long time and it doesn’t change), poll (a study which shows that people think about something), standard time (the official local time of a region or country).
