""What can be considered the first modern thermometer, the mercury thermometer with a standardized scale, was invented by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit in 1714.
Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit was the German physicist who invented a alcohol thermometer in 1709, and the mercury thermometer in 1714. In 1724, he introduced the standard temperature scale that bears his name - Fahrenheit Scale - that was used to record changes in temperature in an accurate fashion.
The Fahrenheit scale divided the freezing and boiling points of water into 180 degrees. 32°F was the freezing pint of water and 212°F was the boiling point of water. 0°F was based on the temperature of an equal mixture of water, ice, and salt. Fahrenheit based his temperature scale on the temperature of the human body. Originally, the human body temperature was 100° F on the Fahrenheit scale, but it has since been adjusted to 98.6°F.
The same thermometer we use today was invented in 1714.
What were you so stupidly saying about unreliable??
The only unreliable thing here is you and your ignorant observations, based on hatred and stupidity.
250-year old temperature data is completely unreliable at the precision level implied.
Does Dupie have records of the instrument calibration from 250 years ago? Was the thermometer scale calibrated in 5-degree increments, 1-degree increments, or what?
