Seems to me including at least two decimal places would be expected from the scientific community
What would be expected from the scientific community is that they present result data with only the precision of the measurements used to compute it. I learned that in eighth grade science class. Why didn't you (and the climate "scientists"?) Aggregated data from hundreds or thousands of thermometers with precisions of at BEST a tenth of a degree, many of which are in dark painted boxes exposed to sunlight, or near air conditioners, or black-topped parking lots, does NOT produce results accurate to hundredths of a degree. Showing numbers like 14.72 can be intended only to fool the public into believing their data is far more accurate than it actually is. It apparently works. On you, anyway.
