What might be the effect on seasons if the earths orbit became more elliptical and at the same time the angle of the tilt of Earth's axis increased?

A lot would depend on "How much?" additional tilt and eccentricity of the orbit. The Earth's axis of rotation is currently 23 and change degrees "tilted" to the ecliptic, the (MORE)

What would e the effect on Earths seasons if the axis were tilted at 28.5 instead of 23.5?

The seasons would intensify, and the Summer would be hotter, and the Winter be colder. This would make for a completely different environment, since the change would be larger (MORE)

What would happen if the earth's axis were straight up and down at zero degrees instead of tilted at 23.5 degrees?

Basically, if the Earth were not tilted, the same amount of sun would fall on all parts of the Earth each day of the year. The polar regions would continue receiving less sola (MORE)

How does the earth's tilted axis cause seasons?

it isn't the earths tilted axis that causes the seasons but curcuit that we travel the sun, for example during winter we are further away from the sun and during summer we are (MORE)

What is the angle of tilt of Earth's axis?

Earth's axis of rotation is currently tilted  23.439 degrees measured from the perpendicular to the Ecliptic.    Earth's axial tilt varies from 22.1° to 24.5° over a (MORE)

How does the tilt of earth's axis cause the seasons?

The Earth's axis is tilted from perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic by 23.45°. This tilting is what gives us the four seasons of the year - spring, summer, autumn (fal (MORE)

What would the weather be like in Wisconsin if the earth was not tilted on its axis 23.5 degrees?

If the tilt were zero - of the equator were parallel to the ecliptic - then there wouldn't be any seasons as we know them. For Wisconsin, that might make life quite miserable. (MORE)
