Interesting. How would you do it?

By moving a lot of asteroids near Earth and use gravity to make Earth tip over a bit so it becomes straight rather than tilted.

Hmmm. That would mean we would have to build a lot of powerful rockets to go out and collect those asteroids, then haul them back here to do there job. Once done, they would have to be hauled away again so they don't overdo their job.

Wouldn't it be simpler to just fix a couple of rocket engines to the Earth itself?

More asteroids, reduction of tilt faster. Fewer asteroids, reduction of tilt slower. Take asteroids away as Earth becomes straighter. When Earth is completely straight, take the last asteroid away.

Rocket on, rocket off. Cheaper than chasing asteroids I think. Besides how would you position asteroids to change the tilt of the Earth by gravity?

Have you calculated how energy you would need?

Do we have the technology to do it?

Is it feasible that the technology would ever be developed?

Is it really desireable to do this?

Are you insane?

Is one of you a troll?

Are both of you trolls?

Why Am I bothering?

No, but I'm pretty sure it would require more energy to go chase asteroids, bring 'em back here, position them just right, then take them away again.

No.

Unknown. You cannot predict the future any better than I can. We probably would not develop that technology in our lifetime.

Unknown. Removing the seasonal cycle completely would have to be studied on quite a few organisms first, to see if they would adapt to it. If the change occurred over a long period of time, instead of quickly as the scenario you presented, it might be quite survivable and adaptable.

Only you can figure that one out.

In March when the northern hemisphere is spring and the southern hemisphere is fall, Earth is completely straight, no tilt. If at this particular time using force to stop Earth from tilting over, then Earth's tilt can be gotten rid of.

What is true is that seasonal cycles is bad for life. Life adapts to it. But without it, life would be easier because no life likes hot summer and cold winter. Life prefers good spring / fall climate.

Tilt is still there.

In March Earth is straight not tilted.

Nope. It's tilted at the same angle (23.5 degrees) in every month of the year. It never changes. During the spring and fall equinox, the tilt is sideways with respect to the sun. During the winter and summer solstices, the tilt is directly toward or away from the sun. The tilt itself never even rotates. The effect is solely due to the Earth's position in its orbit.
