WTF? wheres the latitude numbers?

Latitudes[edit]

Should it really say the limits are 33 deg 33 min 33 sec? This latitude seems to make no sense. Making more sense would be 30 deg exactly (one third of the way from the equator to the poles) or 23 deg 26 min - the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Same goes for the upper limits. They aren't even the same currently (66 deg 33 min 33 sec N and 64 deg 33 min 33 sec S) - 60 deg (two thirds of the way from the equator to the poles) or 66 deg 34 min - the Arctic and Antarctic Circles.

Merger Proposal[edit]

There's been a call to merge this article with Temperateness. Unfortunately, we're trying to merge Temperateness with Temperate climate at this time. This article is being left out of this merger since we're not sure how it affects the geography purposes. IF this merger occurs, we'll be back to change the "See Also" link to the correct article.

Also, there seems to be an error describing the roaring forties. This is known strictly in the Southern Hemisphere, as there is too many landmasses in the Northern.

The merger is done now Watchwolf49z (talk) 02:47, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
