    Well uh, weather is affected by many things, ie general climate, wind patterns, location on the earth, ocean currents. because of a location's angle towards the sun based on the orbit.... ehhh fk this im taking a nap.

    And that's a HUGE change. So, when the Earth is like this|dw:1336091153355:dw| The top part is recieving more light from the sun, so more heat, that makes summer and the lower part gets little of light, so little of heat, that makes winter

    when the sun hits part of the Earth, it warms up the closest part to it. When we are at different lengths from the sun because of the tilt we receive different heats

    And while the Earth rotates from summer to winter, the top part (Let's use North America) will get into the part that's will be farther than the rest

    is this right? When the sun hits part of the Earth, it warms up the closest part to it. When we are at different lengths from the sun because of the tilt we receive different heats and while the Earth rotates from summer to winter, the top part (Let's use North America) will get into the part that's will be farther than the rest.

    as you can see, on the left side, the North America is at the place where that's the nearest of the sun, on as it's rotates to the right side, North america is at the place where the distance from Earth to the Sun is the farthest, on Earth.

    Yes! And all that because of the tilt of 23 degrees

    That's why the equator is always hot, because it's at the same distance to the sun no matter on what position is the Earth.
