What would happen if the earth stopped rotating on its own axis?
If the earth did stop spinning, we would have 3 months of darkness, dawn and sun.
Naturally, most plant life wouldn’t survive.
The difference in temperature between the light and dark side of the earth would create huge changes in wind and ocean currents.The atmosphere would keep moving at 1000 mph speeds, mowing down mountains and cities. Anything that is not attached to bedrock would fly along. That would include soil, rocks, animals, buildings, etc. We humans would end up flying with the wind too.The cold water of the ocean, when it would meet the hot wind, would create a new kind of weather consisting of fog, wind, spray that would keep changing quickly. Ocean life would find it tough to survive. Dolphins would find it difficult to breathe.If the earth stopped rotating, the magnetic field would not be regenerated and limited to the magnetic field generated by its rocks rich in iron that are fossilised. We would no longer be able to see the Northern Lights. We would also no longer be protected from high energy particles like the radioactive rays of the sun.
So earth will be destroyed by imbalance of sunlight energy.
