Temperature (T) degrees Celsius (oC) arbitrary
scale from 0oC at melting point of ice to 100oC at
boiling point of water
Also (Kelvin, K) = oC plus 273.15
0 K is absolute zero, the minimum possible
temperature
Americans and Telegraph readers tend to use

The human body has an energy balance just like the
Earth (solar radiative heating, thermal radiative
heating/cooling, evaporative cooling (sweat))
although this is complicated by drinking tea. Wind
makes us cool because it increases the flow of
energy from the body through evaporation (sweat)
