"Fahrenheit vs. Celsius."
In response to Reply #4


Fahrenheit is the finer graduation but is considered the more old fashioned scale of the two measurements. Celsius is more often used by those of a scientific bent. But there is a bit of sleight of hand going on with the climate change deniers. They want to use the Celsius scale so that they can say, "Oh, the temperature has only gone up a couple of degrees."

1 degree Celsius is equal to 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. Almost double. And not as alarming when announced in the Celsius scale.

So when it suits their purpose, conservatives like to get progressive with the metric system.
