Kelvins Centigrades and Fahrenheits

Well, see for yourself:…

As for the discussion on the scale to use: the good thing about Celsius 
is that the sign actually has a meaning, with your dahlias and tomatoes 
collapsing at 0°C. The use of Kelvin is the best alternative from a 
physical point of view, but wouldn't reflect the human perception of 
temperature. it would at least remove physical nonsense like "yesterday 
it was twice as hot (or, physically worse, twice as cold) as today" from 
everyday language. since I haven't grown up with Fahrenheit the only 
plus on that scale I can think of are the conveniant temperature levels 
for the Deno-Method with 40 and 70 F...
