I used the following facts to provide this answer:

'is taller than' is a left comparison of 'is the height of'

33,476 feet has been the height of Mauna Kea since at least February 25th 2009, 00:00:00

8,848 metres has been the height of Mount Everest since at least December 29th 2010

8,848 metres has been the height of Mount Everest since at least February 27th 2009, 00:00:00

metre is an unit of length

metre is an unit of measurement

metre is a SI base unit

metre is a metric unit of measurement

0.3048 has always been the multiplier that converts foot and metre
