Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Citizens demand an end to clock changes. Scores of organizations representing millions of scientists, doctors, teachers, parents, and community leaders urge for permanent Standard Time. Data and history show that geographically appropriate, permanent Standard Time is the best civil clock for health, safety, education, productivity, wages, environment, and civil liberty. Clocks are not arbitrary; Standard Time is an objective approximation of solar time, which is biologically entrained in our every living cell. Permanent Standard Time is also the quickest way to end clock changes in North America. The US 1966 Uniform Time Act permits any state to opt out DST. Unfortunately, a few special interests (retail, golf, and tourism) seek to extend DST into winter and make its false clock permanent. Scientists warn permanent DST is more harmful than clock changes. Several countries (including the US) have previously tried and reverted permanent DST (but not without loss of money and lives).

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Standard Time is best for health, safety, education, productivity, wages, en­vi­ron­ment, and civil liberty. Permanent Standard Time is the quickest way to end clock changes in North America. Save Standard Time is a nonprofit, non­par­ti­san, donor-funded, volunteer-run effort to preserve and extend the observation of longitudinally correct Standard Time.

Save Standard Time works to raise public awareness, inform journalists, and persuade lawmakers to evaluate the body of evidence that supports the continuation of Standard Time in winter and the cessation of clock change by permanent Standard Time. Save Standard Time seeks to expand advocacy efforts for healthier and safer Standard Time, to replace bills for permanent DST with bills for permanent Standard Time, and to restore permanent Standard Time across North America.
