Atlantic Standard Time

One potentially small victory versus daylight savings?

Should Massachusetts switch to Atlantic Standard Time?

“I wasn’t prepared for it,” Emswiler said. “I just think it’s miserable when the sun sets at 4 o’clock. . .  On a cloudy day, it starts getting dark at 3:50-something.”
He eventually penned a column for The Boston Globe in 2014, listing some of the potential benefits of extending Atlantic Standard Time, one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time, through the fall and winter. After all, he argues, we’re already essentially in that time zone for most of the year, through daylight saving time.
