I mean this question:

How would Earth's climate differ if it's axis were tilted around 90 degrees like Uranus?

The closing moderator said the question is about Earth science, but in fact the question about Earth's orbital motion in Solar System, which is NOT a part of Earth's science, but a part of astronomy. Also the question is not exactly about Earth but about a hypothetical planet that has similar physical characteristics but different rotation mode.


1 Answer 1


The author isn't asking about the orbital motion; they're asking about the climate. There's nothing about the "seasons, temperature, and life on Earth" that makes it within the scope of this site. The questions may or may not fit on Earth Science; I'll have to leave that for them to discuss.
