[BBC News item seen on my phone this morning]
There is a difference between temperature and temperature difference!
I blogged about suchnonsense a few years back, and even noted that I had once seen a similar statement in a newspaper. I didn’t have a source. I do now!
The BBC page has now been fixed to say just “rise in temperatures below 2C”; but why not “rise in temperatures below 2C (3.6F)”, or even “rise in temperatures below 2°C (3.6°F)”?
