    The Coriolis force would be lower, thereby reducing the intensity of circulation patterns. Hurricanes would tend to be weaker.

    But you really need to ask meteorologists and climatologists, not astronomers.

    Well, I don't know *how much* more extreme it would be, but... it would be more, definitely.  With an average of 12 hours more cooling/12 hours more heating during a full day, the areas around the tropics would probably be most affected... the polar regions probably would notice the change a bit less, again guessing.

    The earth is stationary and flat according so some of the evidence. Other evidence thinks it is a ball, but can't prove that because the first evidence set gets in it's way.
