    12 hours is not enough time for equatorial air to cool to the point of freezing
    whereas it has been slightly longer than 12 hours since the sun shone directly down on either pole

    Lemme help you out anon:
    If distance to the sun was the driving factor for temperatures on earth, think about how long the north pole is exposed to sunlight every day in this image vs the far side of the earth.
    For homework, please do look into how the earth's tilt actually causes seasons and influences climate zones (hint, it has nothing to do with the distance from the sun)
    Lastly, as a little teaser for next class, I'll say that direct exposure to sunlight is far from the only factor that influences how warm or cold a place is. The ability of the environment to absorb heat is essential (that's why deserts are so cold at night) and things like sea currents also contribute to this, that's why some parts of Europe are relatively warm, despite being on the same latitude as Canada's snowy wastes

      >pseudoscience
      Round earthism makes no sense whatsoever.

      >Muh tilt
      This is moronation. Peak moronation. And literally impossible.

      There is a tilt... magically measured from my made up arbitrary point.

      This is literally impossible!

        It is incredibly easy yo measure, are you stupid?
        And the "arbitrary point" is the orbital plane, because you know, that's the relevant point to measure to for the purpose of understanding seasons?
        >This is literally impossible!
        and surely you can explain why

        >It's not really a matter of distance so much as angle
        This is moronic bullshit
        >Muh angel
        Measured from what? A imaginary plane you made up in space?

        If I want to find out if a new desk is going to fit in my room and I measure the distance from an arbitrary point on my wall where I want to put it to find out, is that also bullshit?

          See this is literally impossible.

          This is not how spheres work you dumb frick!
          Tell me how a sphere can have a tilt.

          Someone simply drew nonsense lines out of nowhere there.

          >desk
          >room
          Are you moronic? WE are talking about planets placed in a void.

            hold on, do you even know what the orbital plane is?
            >tell me how a sphere can have a tilt.
            The sphere doesn't have a tilt, the axis of rotation does. We just colloquially say that the sphere has a tilt because it's easier and that's how pragmatic ambiguity and language works.

            Explain how a sphere can be tilted.

            Or what the size of the earth and the sun is?

            >We just colloquially say that the sphere has a tilt because
            Because you are moronic gayots?

            >The sphere doesn't have a tilt, the axis of rotation does.
            Try to explain seasons with that one!

            This is relevant to this discussion because...?
            >Because you are moronic gayots?
            kek, so you are complaining about people saying a thing colloquially to mean something obvious which does not 100% line up with the literal meaning of the sentence, while doing the exact same yourself. Because surely you mean gayot as an insult instead of implying that everyone who uses pragmatic ambiguity is a literal homosexual.
            >try to explain seasons with that one!
            earth spin
            part where winter get less sun-time per day
            part where winter also get less energy from sun rays because of math you'd have to go to 7th grade to in order to understand
            that simple enough for you?

            A sphere who is so small as the earth is insignificant in its behavior to a sphere as gigantic as the sun.

            You are simply in conflict with geometry at this point.

            and I'm sure you can explain why, right anon?
            Because I can tell you that the relative size of the two bodies becomes less and less relevant, the further the distance increases
            >You are simply in conflict with geometry at this point.
            says the person who doesn't seem to understand how distributing constant energy over a larger surface area causes less energy to be present per unit of surface area

            This is not happening. Like literally not happening.
            IT is a sphere.
            With nothing blocking the light outside of the occasional eclipse.

            You are saying that the sun's rays hit every place on earth at a 90 degree angle at noon all the time?
            This doesn't even have anything to do with the tilt, it's just how spheres work.
            All the tilt does is cause seasons, if the tilt wasn't there, the poles would still (on average) be colder than the equator.
            >With nothing blocking the light outside of the occasional eclipse.
            who's talking about light being blocked? The only relevant blocking of light is called nighttime.

    thermal inertia thanks to the atmosphere plus less radiation incident at higher latitudes for longer (less Sun-hours per day), jesus christ is there even the need to ask this?

    Might as well think that when you go inside, close the door, and turn off the light to stand in the dark, you freeze instantly into a solid block.

    It's not really a matter of distance so much as angle. The sunlight the poles get is spread over a bigger area.
    Also things don't instantly freeze when they're in shadow.

    Distance is not relevant, it's the angle of the surface to the sun.

    Thermal inertia, mostly due to oceans.
