To my surprise, many of my postdoctoral friends were not aware of it. :)
I know a man who works as a parts advisor, and he told me that oil pan heaters and block heaters are pretty much completely useless, and that a battery blanket/warmer is the absolute best option you can choose. Is this true? Engines obviously have oil upon startup, but could an oil pan heater be the best for engine protection? Mine has 250,000KM, or 155,000 miles and I do not need it to blow on me while I get ready for work. Thank you!
Lemme explain a little better: example: why to our bodies going from 37° C to 38° C is a drastic change? What's all the "body temperature" thing about?
I am going to be heading to Taiwan to live and dive for a few years. I am a U.K diver and would preferably like to continue diving in a drysuit as I am used to the buoyancy, like the redundancy etc. Does anyone have any experience diving Tri-lam drysuit (no hood or gloves), very thin sweat wicking underlayer only, in water temperatures of 25-30 degrees Celsius? Is it comfortable, or just way too damn hot? Thanks!
I've heard a lot that if we cross this threshold we're doomed. I'm not doubting it - I just want to understand how exactly? It seems like a small amount. I live in the UK and the temperature can range from -10 or colder in the coldest winters, to high 30s in the hottest Summers. If the average temperature was a couple of degrees higher, it might be a bit bothersome, but not really a big deal - in-fact most people would probably appreciate it. I get if you already live somewhere, where it's very hot such that it's difficult to grow food already, that an extra couple of degrees could be problematic, but surely that's a minority of people and is somewhat a distribution of wealth / economic problem - because if they have the money they can import from elsewhere in the world, the majority of where 2 degrees shouldn't make much of a difference to the ability to grow crops or rear livestock? Another issue I hear about is more extreme weather events, but are these really going to be civilization ending? And we may lose some species, and that sucks, but does it really matter that much? In a million years, having transcended into some superior life-form that inhabits every corner of the galaxy, are we really going to miss the polar bears?
As I said, I'm not here to deny global warming or say that we shouldn't be doing anything about it. I'm just trying to understand why 2 degrees is a big deal.
On product page I see operating temperature should be 0 - 70 degree Celsius !
We didn't have school for two days and were advised not to go outside longer than 10 minutes as it would lead to frostbite, and if going outside we were advised to wear a ton of layers and leave no skin exposed, but the videos I've seen online show people in even colder climates just standing there, chatting, no scarves, just normally bundled up.
Water temperature will be a bit lower as it is from a tank kept on our roof. Around 5 degree Celsius I'd say. Please help :)
