Jay Pea, founder of Save Standard Time, debunks the many bizarre, baseless, conspiratorial, libelous, and harassing claims from Scott Yates of Lock the Clock.

Over 15 months, Scott Yates has written at least 28 false or defamatory tweets against my personal character (linked, quoted, and disproved below). He has written…

We offered documentation and virtual meetings to show why permanent Standard Time—not permanent DST—is in Albertans’ best interests. Nate Glubish’s response to us appears below.

The quickest way to end Daylight Saving Time’s clock changes in North America is to restore permanent Standard Time. Congress already permits states to restore permanent Standard Time, while permanent DST is federally forbidden. Arizona, Hawaii, and all US territories restored permanent Standard Time decades ago, without difficulty or drawback.[Craven][Jennings][Korch][Mauer][Mercury][Skelton…

The petroleum industry noticed a connection between DST and…

Standard Time has been known as “God’s time”[Korch][Mauer][Hammill] to many farmers and religious populations, for its proximity to natural (solar) time. Daylight Saving Time’s arbitrarily added hour disrupts time-based prayers, creates scheduling conflicts for worshipers each morning and night, and places undue burden on their surrounding communities and businesses.

Daylight Saving Time observation (not the changing of clocks) wastes energy and increases pollution. Artificially moving an hour of daylight from mornings to evenings might reduce evening lighting costs as originally promised, but any savings is canceled by increased morning lighting. Furthermore, modern lighting is not a considerable energy expense…
