Celsius or Fahrenheit

Scientists, climate change experts, young Canadians, Europeans all use the metric Celsius system of temperature measurement. Americans and elderly Canadians use the earlier Fahrenheit system. Unfortunately, both schemes use the degree as the unit of measure. This causes confusion when a radio announcer talks about a 2.0°C (3.6°F) rise if they don’t specify the system. I have even heard an announcer on Deutsche Welle using both systems in the same sentence without specifying.
