Suggestions, and a request for these to be forwarded on to the organisations and individuals. [article contributed by PB]
For them to archive the F word and give temperatures only in degrees Celsius.
TV WEATHER PRESENTERS
For them to start showing wind speeds on their maps in km/h. Speeds in mph could be given orally for a limited time.
NEWSPAPERS INCLUDING WEB MEDIA for the UK
For them to start showing wind speeds on their maps in km/h.
For them to adopt full metrication in all areas. This includes the metric pricing for allotment charges.
TRADING STANDARDS OFFICERS
For them to enforce metric pricing and ensure that market traders FULLY comply with the regulations.
I’m sure many more can be added to this list.
One thought on “Suggested New Year resolutions”
On further consideration, I suggest that wind speeds should be shown in m/s. While the conversion ratio is 1 : 2,7777778 it provides very manageable numbers. E.g. 50km/h converts to 14m/s±.
