Fim do horário de verão: Mais estudos seriam recomendáveis

Mauricio T. Tolmasquim

Insalubre e irritante para alguns, saudável e lucrativo para outros, o horário de verão é tema de debates acalorados. Proposto por Benjamin Franklin, que percebeu que em certos meses do ano o sol nascia antes das pessoas se levantarem, o horário de verão é atualmente adotado por 70 países. O objetivo do cientista estadunidense era economizar vela. A motivação das economias contemporâneas é economizar energia e diminuir a demanda máxima no horário de ponta.
