How the angle of the sun hitting the surface of the earth affects the different seasonal temperatures?

Take a torch (flash light) and a carpet tile. Place the carpet tile on the floor and standing directly above it, Hold the torch 6 feet (2 Meters) away form the carpet tile and switch it on. The light from the torch will form a circle in the centre of the tile. Now move 6 feet to the left and keeping the torch 2 foot off the ground shine the light on the tile. The light form the torch will now form an oval which will be bigger than the carpet tile. The energy form the torch is spread out. The Earth is a ball in space and the Sun is the torch. Where the sunlight hits the Earth's surface from directly above, the energy form the Sun is most concentrated but as you move north or south (and indeed east or west) from this overhead position the angle of the light from the Sun gets more and more oblique, the energy from the Sun is spread out more. The Earth spins tilted on its axis as it orbits the Sun. Thus the point at which the Sun is directly overhead moves North and South of the equator during the Year and this means that for 6 months the North gets more concentrated sunlight than the south and vice versa for the other 6 months. This is what causes the seasons and the warming and cooling that accompanies them.

Why was asbestos used in roofs for houses?

Asbestos was chosen as a component in structural materials because of its relative abundance, its stability to chemical attack, and its ability to remain unchanged over a wide range of environmental conditions. Its fibrous shape also made it useful as a material to strengthen otherwise brittle materials like cement and tile. The very things that cause it to be a problem in the human body - its fibrous nature, and its immunity to chemical attack, were characteristics that made it useful as a building material.
