    LOL, I don't think Ingomike read the whole thing, either.

    No, there's a bit more than just Brazil. From the article:

    ...Some 70 countries, mostly in the Northern Hemisphere, observe DST to some extent, seeking to leverage natural daylight and reduce energy consumption. Parts of Canada, Mexico, the United States, and most of Europe are in this group. However, the well-intentioned measure has proved counterproductive, and prudent countries are rolling it back.



    Notably, the European Parliament voted in March to scrap its coordinated DST from 2021. All 28 member nations—or 27, Brexit withstanding—must stop the twice-yearly switch and either settle on summer or winter time for the foreseeable future.



    A public consultation prior to the vote showed that Europeans detest the clock changes: a crushing 84 percent of respondents wanted to end what has been an EU-wide imposition since 1996. In the United States, a 2014 poll revealed only 34 percent of respondents thought DST was worth the hassle...

    Maybe with the EU dropping it, we might gain some traction.

    If we lose DST I will be permanently pizzesd off. For a guy that say gets to shoot outside 90 times, after work, this spring through the fall, loses 90 hours of daylight to do it in. This applies to anyone that works or recreates outdoors and that is a huge number of people. That would be a huge personal loss. DST is good for the majority of people...

    The majority of people will keep right on saving daylight year-round.

    It's the perpetual changing back and forth that the majority never wanted and still don't. That won't be missed.

    7:50 was bedtime 100 years ago and for infants. Average Americans go to bed at 11:00 PM.

    I think you've conflated EDT with clock changing. What you want is to stay on EDT permanently. That sentiment may well be shared by a large percentage of people. The majority of this thread has not complained about the late sunset but the diddling of the clocks twice/year.
