an easier target in Fahrenheit?

Seriously, BBC, WTF?

[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)”?
