Why does the thermosphere have the highest temperature of all the atmosphere layers

The thermosphere is the first layer of the atmosphere where there are enough heavier molecules (oxygen) to absorb a significant anount of the Sun's radiation. Below the thermosphere, much of the heat is dissipated by convective currents.
Although technically "hot", the gas in the thermosphere is so thin that it can pass little heat to other molecules, and loss of heat by radiation would still cool objects in this part of the atmosphere.
the sun's radiation strikes it first

How has modernization generally affected religious traditions in the 20th and 21st centuries

Answer this question…

It has led many societies to become more secular and less religious.

What causes the global convection current between the equator and the poles.

Surface currents are caused by wind, and affected by the rotation of the Earth and the gravity of the moon (tides). When the oceans are deep, convection within the layers can also affect the flow of currents.

* While wind currents are greatly affected by uneven heating of the Earth's surface, there is no corresponding heating of the ocean bottom by the Sun. So currents do not form spontaneously at depth.
