      Next Monday ‘Daylight Saving’ will start in the USA: from March to November, clocks will be set forward one hour to optimize the use of natural light and save energy.

      Germany was the first modern country to introduce Daylight Saving in 1916, during World War I. But  ancient civilizations – like the Romans – used to adjust their daily schedules to the Sun’s schedule.

      However,  the result is polemic: while  energy consumption for electric lighting is reduced, the demand for air conditioning and for heating during the darker winter nights are drastically increased.
