If the Earth's axis of rotation is non-zero, then how do we explain why countries near the equator do not experience seasons and are always hot.


@previous question: Draw normals at the equator on both Earths in the diagram. Note that the angle between the normal and the sunlight is the same, but in the other direction. Therefore the intensity of the light is the same, so the temperature remains similar all year.
