    Dear Tom, 

    When often we talk of temperature taken in the 1800s, how accurate were they?

    Thanks,   Dave Zemke

    Dear David,

     Temperatures taken from mercury thermometers by the U.S. Weather Bureau in the late 1800s were actually more accurate than the readings from today’s electronic thermometers. Once calibrated, a mercury-in-glass thermometer requires no additional adjustment, if undisturbed, and those readings were generally accurate to one- or two-tenths of a degree Fahrenheit. However, they had to be obtained manually, whereas digital readouts from today’s electronic thermometers are continuously available and can be remoted. The tradeoff for this convenience is accuracy. Most electronic thermometers are considered to be accurate within plus or minus 2 degrees F and occasionally require maintenance when they drift out of calibration.

    How hot did it get in the 1800s?
    Mean global temperatures then stabilized at roughly 14.0°C (57.2 °F) until the 1980s. The world has mainly grown hotter since 1980, at a rate of nearly 0.2 °C (0.36 °F) per decade.Temperature Change Since 1880. more
    How hot is too hot to survive?
    People often point to a study published in 2010 that estimated that a wet-bulb temperature of 35 C – equal to 95 F at 100% humidity, or 115 F at 50% humidity – would be the upper limit of safety, beyond which the human body can no longer cool itself by evaporating sweat from the surface of the body to maintain a stable more

    How hot is too hot for Labs?
    One clear sign of how hot is too hot for dogs is if your pooch's tongue is hanging long and she's panting a lot. Canine cooling doesn't happen by sweating, as humans will do, but rather through panting: when moisture inside your dog's mouth and on her tongue evaporates, this helps her thermoregulate. more
    How hot is too hot for Pomeranian?
    Check your Pom's temperature. A Pomeranian's body temperature should be very close to 101 degrees Fahrenheit. Any thing under 99 or over 103 is harmful and needs attention. Rising even three degrees above that means overheating. more
