Why is it hotter at the equator
than at the Poles?

a) The angle at which sunlight hits
the earth leads to solar energy being spread over a smaller area at the equator
than at the Poles. b) The increased rotational speed of the earth at the Poles
creates strong winds that increase radiant cooling. c) Greater cloud cover at
the equator leads to a greater “greenhouse” effect than at the Poles. d) The
water in the oceans has a high heat capacity, and there is significantly more
water at the equator than at the Poles. e) All of the above are responsible for
the higher average temperature at
