The earth is tilted on its axis 23 degrees. It also in an elliptical orbit around the star Sol (the sun). As the earth gets nearest to the sun (winter in the N. hemisphere) the tilt of the earth points the N. hemispheres away from the sun (it’s at a lower angle). The less direct the sun, the less radiation (heat) we receive from it.<br />

Sun be low in sky. Can’t heat me. I’m cold!

LOL... Brrrr. txt talk

It is cold outside in the winter in the sun, because your part of the globe is tilted away from the sun slightly. The extra distance away is not the main issue. What causes the cold is the fact that since the sun is hitting your part of the globe obliquely due to the tilt, the sunlight is spread out over a larger surface area. Since the sunlight is pretty constant, you have the same amount energy as summer hitting a larger surface area. This means less energy hits on any given area. Another words, the same amount of sunlight is spread out over a larger area, thus not warming it as much. Hope that makes sense.

u sir r the most ignorant human being in the world. didnt u pay attention to earth science in high school

Because the sunlight comes at a more indirect angle in the winter than the summer. This requires it to pass through more atmosphere before it hits the ground, and when it does hit the ground the energy is more likely to bounce off because of the angle.

If the temperture outside is 32 degrees and the sun is shining and no clouds, water will freeze. I'll give you one you won't believe but you can try it and it works. You can boil water or an egg in a paper cup. Get a large paper cup and place an egg in it. Fill the paper cup with water just below the top. Turn your stove on and watch. the water will boil and the cup may burn down to the water line but that's okay. The paper cup won't burn. Enjoy your egg. The kindling temp. of water is much higher than paper. Kindling temp. is the temp at which something burns. Fresh corn is great cooked in it's leaves and many other vegies are great cooked in leaves. Be careful of the leaves. Oh. water will boil in an orange peel also. Have fun.

The same reason it rains with no clouds in the sky...Cause it can..

first thing you need is an education on how to spell....
