This is the text (if you need help).

People want Daylight Saving Time (DST) to end. DST is putting clocks backwards and forwards an hour in the autumn and spring. It gives an extra hour of daylight in the summer. Scientists say it could be harmful to our health and increase energy costs. Two states in the USA are thinking about ending DST. People there say it has no meaning today because we have electric lights and people work day and night.

People who want DST say it saves energy because lights are turned on later. They say people do more outdoor activities, so it is good for our health. They also say it cuts traffic accidents and crime. People who support DST include city workers, shop owners, and tourism companies. People who want DST to end say it increases energy costs. They say the number of heart attacks increases because of changes to our body clock.
