If Earth was at a 60 degree tilt instead of 23.5, would winter and summer be more severe or shorter?

I suppose that would depend on what part of the planet you live on. If North America received less energy from the sun than it currently does, it would have a more extreme enviroment and if it had more exposure to the sun's energy, North America would be more tropical.<br /><br />But, the experts here can probably elaborate allot better than I.

If the Earth was at a 60 degree tilt, the Arctic Circle would be down at Tallahassee, Florida. Springs and Falls would be very short, only a few weeks. Summers and Winters would each be about 5.5 months long. The severity of each would be OFF the charts. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p> </p> </div>

Yes billslugg is correct. The seasons would be longer and FAR more severe. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John. Monsters.

Actually, as far as I can tell, you feel like a pizza. <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.

By the way, the total hours of solar insolation, neglecting clouds, would remain exactly the same for every spot on Earth, exactly as it is today - 4383 hours <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p> </p> </div>

Sorry unlimitedk, you got a mixed answer from me, i work in drilling, so I just assumed -60 which is 30 deg, which will still make the seasons longer, but not by much.<br /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><em><u>SPONGE</u></em></p> </div>

MeterorWyne and I think Billslugg is correct. At the Equator which presently has little temperature and light level varriation the cold season would be spring AND fall when the Sun was only 30 degrees above the horizon at noon and night is about 16 hours long. Neil
