Okay, say on a random day... lets go with Dec 21 2012... the earth and it's axis began to move in unison. When they stop they are now facing 90 degrees (give or take, i know the earths poles aren't actuary at 90 degrees to the sun.) Basically, what if the north pole/axis faced the sun for part of the year, then as the year went on the equator would, then the south pole, then the equator again, then the north pole again. I did the math some time ago (and sense lost it) on how the days, starting on the equinox at 60 North, would grow longer and the nights would become brighter until it was just one long day over three months, then would revers until you had another equinox, then the same would happen with the night. The equator acted even odder as as the "long days/nights" would actually be twilight which would give way into continuous equinoxes marked only by shorting periods of twilight until you had a normal equinox. Could humanity even survive on this sort of a planet? what would the weather do? In think survival around the equator would be possible.
Come to think of it, I should have placed this in World Building, Sorry.
This is not Tidal Locked.
