How would the weather and currents be different if Earth's rotational axis mirrored Uranus' in that it was parallel to the world's orbit?
Would this hold true for a Terrestrial World (call it "Lazuly" for ease of reference) that was mostly water with its sole continent occupying a pole, while the rest of the land masses consists of islands big (like Japan, or Britain) and small (Hawaii, et al.)?
From what I saw, the equator of the planet would be "facing" the sun during the Spring/Fall Equinoxes, but come "Summer" it'd be north pole facing the sun, and the "Winter" would have the south pole facing the sun.
Would the equator/tropic regions remain the most habitable?
Would this world be able to support life as we know it?
What would a day/night cycle be like?
I'd imagine that this up-ended world would be markedly different from our own, and I wanted to explore how, except I'm finding this concept really boggling my mind.
