Where can I emigrate to? No, I don't need snow, ice, gale force winds, flooding or high tides.
I'm afraid the US is losing the Fahrenheit battle, from the tumblr Land of Maps.Correct me if you will, but I think some people in the UK think in Fahrenheit. When we were last there in 2008, dual temps were given out by BBC North East.
While in some areas in Australia metrication has gone backwards from an advanced situation, tyre pressure, pounds per square inch to kilopascles and then back again, energy intake, calories to kilojoules and back again, even a person my age struggles to remember Fahrenheit. 100F was hot and 32F freezing point but I don't remember any relativity in between.
