How do rotation and revolution impact the climate of the earth?

Every instant, Earth's day-night spin rotates the sunlit hemisphere, giving a range for daily temperature. The slightly elliptical orbit, with this fixed tilt, creates climate with seasons..


The tilt of 23.4 deg of equator and parallel latitude circles to the Earth's orbital plane (ecliptic ) is responsible for moving the poles towards and away from the ecliptic, during the orbital period of one year. This primarily causes seasonal changes/shifts, in the daily ranges of temperature, in the latitude circles.
