Answer:
When Anders Celsius invented the temperature scale, he put 100 degrees as the point for freezing and 0 degrees as the point for boiling. Carl Linnaeus, waited until Celsius had died to change the scale to the way we read it today.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.

    Linnaeus, the Linnaeus thermometer and Celsius. Celsius’ scale was turned around by Linnaeus for practical measurement reasons

    Anders Celsius and Carl Linnaeus
    Anders Celsius was an astronomer who invented a temperature scale where 100 represented the freezing point and 0 the boiling point of water. Carl Linnaeus reversed the scale to create the centigrade scale, renamed in 1948 to the Celsius scale in use today.

    Anders Celsius Thermometer Carl Linnaeus
    Linnaeus reversed the original scale to 0 – 100 C for easier readings

    Zero was used for boiling point Linnaeus set it to 100

    Anders Celsius Thermometer Carl Linnaeus

    1 = Anders Celsius
    2 = Original Celsius Scale
    3 = Carl Linnaeus

    Originally, when Anders Celsius created his temperature scale, he had 0 = boiling point of water, 100 = freezing point of water. Linnaeus inverted it by making 0 = freezing point of water and 100 = boiling point.

    Quoting wiki:

    Anders Celsius had created the temperature scale named after him in 1742. Celsius’ scale was inverted compared to today, the boiling point at 0 °C and freezing point at 100 °C. In 1745, Carl Linnaeus inverted the scale to its present standard.

    Anders Celsius, Carl Linnaeus.
    Initially Celsius had 0 as boiling point and 100 as melting point. Carl Linnaeus reversed the Celsius scale making 0 as melting point and 100 as boiling point.

    2.Celsius temperature scale, by (1).
    3.Carl Linnaeus, who suggested a change in the scale-boiling point to 100 degrees C, and freezing point at 0 degree C , as we know it today.

    1) Anders Celsius (known for Celsius)
    2) thermometer (old one !!!)
    3) Carl linnaeus (father of mordern ecology)
