While the rest of the world is currently using the metric system, the US is left outand alone using a very confusing and hard to translate imperial system. The United States NEEDS to convert to the metric system!!!!!!!

The metric system helps identify numerical measurements in a much more easy, simplistic, and fool proof way compared to our current system!

The metric system uses measurements based on powers of 10s and units such as meter, liter and gram. It uses prefixes such as centi- (100), milli- (1,000), etc.

Very easy to remember! When you are trying to convert measurements just add or remove zeros! With the imperial system we are using now, we constantly have to convert back and forth! Inches to centimeters… gallons to liters…. miles to kilometers!

America is already teaching its students the metric system as well as the imperial system. Why not just drop the imperial system and let the citizens of tomorrow become more in tune with the rest of the world????

We are already using the metric system in many parts of our lives. Medicine is measured in milligrams, engineers doctors, astronauts, mechanics measure in meters… the metric systems is here and it’s time to commit! We need to join the rest of the world and GO METRIC!!! It will save time and money converting from the imperial unit system to the metric system! In 1999 NASA lost a $125 MILLION Mars orbiter because a team member used imperial units instead of metric units! Millions lost!!

The change is just EMBRACE it!!
