I know we're already tilted. I meant if it tilted a fraction more.

I certainly know we're already tilted, but I'm wondering if the earth shifted even 6 inches what would happen.

 

Thanks

- The tropic zone would be wider. The tropics of cancer and Capricorn would be farther from the equator.

-  Polar regions would be wider from the poles.

- More of the earths surface would have sun-ups, and sun-downs be more than 24 hours.  

-  Seasons everywhere would be more extreme.

-  There would be more violent storms.

-  There would be killer El Ninos.

If the earths axis would be tilted too much we would spin out of control then likely drift into the sun or hit other planets.
