Petition for the Metrication of the USA
We must finally adopt the Metric system.
There is no doubt that the long term cost to our nation for not converting to the Metric system is infinitely higher than the finite, immediate effort of doing so.
From Wikipedia: "[...] as of 2018 the United States is one of only seven countries, including Myanmar (Burma), Liberia, Palau, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and Samoa that have not officially adopted the metric system as the primary means of weights and measures."
Despite it being primarily citizens and unions who opposed Metrication in the 70's, the reality of our antiquated Imperial System is not a benefit to the people. It makes the work of scientists, contractors, industrialists and even DIY'ers a confusing hassle of fractions and incessant unit conversions.
We need to catch up with the rest of the world so we can enjoy the simplicity of the metric system.
How exactly should we go about it?
Join us in promoting the use of the only logical measurements system for America: the Metric System!
