Time Change 2019 Forward - Summertime Ends Tonight In Germany

Time Change 2019 Forward


Time Change 2019 Forward - Summertime end in Germany:


In the night of Sunday, summertime ends in Germany. At 03:00 in the morning, the clocks are reset by one hour from the previous Central European Summer Time (CEST) to the Central European Time (CET).

The night is extended by one hour. After the change to the normal time, also called wintertime, it gets light earlier in the morning and darker in the evening.

Time change 2019 forward:


Many people have had enough of the back and forth of the time change - and they are calling for an end.

However, it is not foreseeable when the EU will implement such plans. The fact that Sunday is one hour long with the time change is unlikely to disturb most people.

However, the transition to summertime in spring and normal time in autumn is increasingly unpopular, as regular surveys show.

When does time change 2019:


In a representative Forsa survey for the health insurance DAK-health, last 78 per cent advocated the abolition of the time change. The proportion of supporters was at only 18 per cent at a low point.

The DAK runs this survey regularly, and the numbers of those complaining about mental and health problems with the time change are getting bigger.

Currently, it is 29 per cent of the respondents. More than three-quarters (77 per cent) feel tired or limp, almost two-thirds have problems falling asleep or staying asleep, and as many as 70 per cent of women.

Time change map:


41 per cent can concentrate less well, almost a third feels irritated. Every eighth suffers from depressive moods.

Men are affected more frequently at 14 per cent than women (10 per cent). At 18 per cent, almost one in five workers came to work late after the time change.

Wintertime change - The time change has consequences for the health:


The German Society for Sleep Research and Sleep Medicine is in favour of maintaining the normal time. 

The daylight and especially the blue portion of the sunlight is the "main timer" for the inner clock of the human being and decisive for the sleep-wake cycle.

All this, according to the experts, is best ensured by the wintertime.

Summertime switch:

By switching to summertime, however, threatened by a lack of sleep, which leads to concentration and performance losses and more accidents.

The German Teachers Association also fears health risks for students in the event of a permanent change to summertime.

According to "Stiftung Warentest" worldwide studies prove the unhealthy consequences of the summertime.

In addition to mental illness also metabolic. This is because wintertime is closer to the biorhythms of a human being, which determines sleep, heart rate and mood.

Researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, for example, found that the risk of a heart attack increased by five per cent as a result of the time change.


Time changes everything in Germany:


Critics of the time change lead in addition to the health burden in the field that this does not fulfil its original purpose.

Presenting the clock in the spring should help save energy in the bright season. Considering that as the day moves forward by an hour, it uses less lighting and therefore less power.

But the resulting energy-saving effects are barely detectable. The Office of Technology Assessment at the German Bundestag also came to the conclusion in an analysis that the energetic aspects hardly matter.

Dairy cows are partly set earlier on the new time


Even animals can make the time change to create. "Especially dairy cows feel it," says the spokesman for the Brandenburg farmers' association, Tino Erstling. The animals were sensitive to changes in usual procedures.

The shift by one hour could confuse them. "That also brings stress," said Erstling. The animals could eat as usual and when they wanted from their troughs, but when milking there is still a time delay.

"In some farms, the dairy cows are set to the time change a few days earlier," said Erstling. In the fall it is always milked a bit later over the day, a little earlier in the spring.

"Then you will soon be back in time." Other farmers are switching from one day to the next. "Then there will be restlessness in the animals, but that will be back soon," says the spokesman.

When time change 2019 in Winter:


In poultry houses, much is regulated about the lighting. "Time change is then not felt," says Erstling. Pigs, however, leaves the time change according to the farmers' association comparatively cold.

The sows feed the piglets when their offspring feel hungry - regardless of summer or wintertime. Even the fattening pigs do not mind to wait an hour for the food. That will not disturb her.

When time change 2019 - The petty bickering between the capitals:


The changeover is based on an EU-wide rule that the CEST starts on the last Sunday in March in all Member States and ends on the last Sunday in October.

Germany introduced the scheme in 1980. The European Commission wants to abolish the time change now in 2021 again.

But the end of the time change could be further delayed. Many states feared that they could be divided into different time zones, said a spokeswoman for the Finnish EU Presidency of the newspapers of the Funke media group.

The Council still has no position, and it is also unclear whether the issue will be on the agenda at the next meeting of EU transport ministers at the beginning of December.

Time change 2020 and 2021 in Future:


The Federal Ministry of Economics stated on request that a decision would have to analyze the EU-wide effects of abolishing the time change.

For the Federal Government, it was crucial "to avoid time islands and friction in the internal market".

The federal government is for an end to the time change, but it still leaves open whether, in Germany, the summer or winter time should apply.

The deputy chairman of the FDP parliamentary group and former member of parliament Alexander Graf Lambsdorff pleads for an abolishment of the time change.

He called on the EU Member States to abolish Europe's time change in 2021. "The FDP is in favour of abolishing the time change in 2021," said Lambsdorff of the Düsseldorf "Rheinische Post".

The current discussion shows were in Europe things have stuck too often: in the Member States.

"Both the Commission and the European Parliament have agreed, but the petty quarrels between the capitals are blocking a solution," Lambsdorff said.

The outgoing EU Budget Commissioner Günther Oettinger (CDU), however, opposes the Commission's plans to end the time change.

Although he had supported the proposal as EU Commissioner. "But it threatens a patchwork in Europe, which would bring significant problems," he warned.

The European internal market is clocked on a time zone. He also warned of negative effects on people's everyday lives.

"Our children would go to school in the dark for a substantial part of the year if Germany introduced the summertime permanently."

When time change 2019:


Originally, the EU Commission had already decided to abolish the time change for 2019. Each country should, therefore, decide whether it permanently introduces the normal or summer time.

The EU Parliament supported this proposal in principle and in March called for an end to the time change from 2021.

However, it lacks the agreement of member countries to prevent a patchwork of different time zones from being created.

Time changes everything - Technically, the time change has long been routine:


Technically, the conversion is not a problem. Time clocks in Germany are the atomic clocks of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt in Braunschweig.

The signals are transmitted via transmitters, which automatically adapt the radio clocks to the time changeover.

The time change has long been routine for Deutsche Bahn as well. The DB night trains, for example, stop at a train station along the travel route during the night of Sunday, to bridge the additional hour.

Even in terms of state policy, the approaching winter season is relevant: Thuringia's provincial election director Günter Krombholz recently pointed out the time change.

Anyone who ignores them might face a closed polling station early next Sunday, he warned. The polling stations are open from 8 am to 6 pm - after wintertime.

Around 1.7 million voters in the Free State are called upon to elect a new parliament.
