The island nation of Greenland — population 56,000 — has “sprung forward” for the very last time. On March 25, Greenland moved its clocks forward one hour for the summer, just as it has done in the past. Except starting this year, it will stay in that time zone for good. Come October, Greenland won’t roll back to standard time.
… For residents in areas of the island that are below the Arctic Circle, it will mean one hour of light later in the day — although as a tourist you’re not likely to notice the difference given the seasonal extremes of sunrise and sunset. The capital city, Nuuk, may see up to 20 hours of sunlight in summer, but only gets about four hours of sunlight in the winter. The main argument in Greenland in favor of the change: It’s a chance to be closer to European business hours, which would benefit the economy.
