Also known as the Aurora Borealis, the northern lights would cease to exist without a magnetic field.
Earth’s 23.5° tilt would disappear. The sun would still be strongest at the equator but we would have no seasons.
If the Earth stopped rotating, we would see the sun increase or decrease in the sky only when changing our latitude.
If it hasn’t become clear by now, nearly everyone and everything would die.
even though the Earth won’t suddenly stop spinning, to have just a
slight chance of surviving, be underground. Being underground and inland
would shelter us from the hurricanes and tsunamis that would
immediately erupt and would prevent the harmful radiation from reaching
us. The problem is you may never be able to leave the underground again.
wind systems move in parallel to the equator but would move from the
equator to the poles if the Earth stopped spinning, massively altering
7. The oceans' surface would atomize
rapidly moving wind systems would atomize the surface layer of any body
of water, including oceans, creating a spray on the surface and waves
that would overturn most if not all vessels.
8. Sea life would die off
churning of the water would kill off any creature relying on air to
breathe and would kill off any creature unable to survive on the
low-oxygen water brought up from the cold depths.
9. Global temperatures would freefall
our atmosphere largely covered by dust and debris, a dense fog would
simultaneously settle over the colder ocean waters, causing temperatures
to further drop.
10. We would be bombarded with radiation
the Earth’s core would simultaneously stop rotating, our planet’s
magnetic field would cease to exist. Without this magnetic field, we
would be vulnerable to all the host of space radiation that bombards our
planet on a daily basis. The waves would irradiate us all and kill us
