Otherwise we would freeze to death tonight after the sun went down.

I'm not sure if you understood my post. That is my point that the sun is heating on the other side of the planet. And the atmosphere retains the heat on the dark side to a certain degree or we would all freeze to death at nightfall.

By the Sun shining on it you fucking dipshit. The ocean is mainly what retains the heat.

Since when did the sun shine at night, other than moonlight? And you think heat off the ocean keeps you from freezing to death at night? Who is the dipshit here? Do they have schools in Mexico?

It would get real cold real fast, but I don't think it would get cold as fast as some here think. The Earth's atmosphere retains heat. Otherwise we would freeze to death tonight after the sun went down. I think it would be a matter of weeks.

After the sun goes down. Now that is funny. The sun never goes down just the other side of the planet faces it but still gets it radiance and heat. Light takes 8 mins to get to earth. If the sun was to stop then it would be a huge explosion/implosion and we would have about 8 mins to live.

lol, sun going down was just a figure of speech. I assume OP meant no explosion/implosion. Of course that would change everything.

I would think it would take weeks. Doesn't Alaska go without sunlight for 30 days or so a year? I would day a few weeks and then we would just become an ice-ball.

 Quoting: Notsure


Um, the Sun is still shining at night, on THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLANET. And yes, since over seventy percent of said planet is covered with water, and water is a terrific absorber of heat, the ocean acts as a huge heat sink and it IS what keeps your dumb ass from freezing at night, since it doesn't cool off anywhere near as fast as the land does.

Ever been to the desert? Since there is no water at all, it gets freezing cold immediately at night, after being blazing hot in the daytime.

I know they have schools up there, but I guess you were off smoking crack on the day they taught this stuff.

The desert is a perfect example. It's not near water, and doesn't really get THAT cold at night. Not the kind of cold we are talking about. Take a look at Mars. Fairly temperate in the daytime, but about -100 at night. That is because Mars has an atmosphere about 1/100th that of Earth. Without that thermal blanket it gets very cold at night very fast. I am in the middle of the United States. How much do you think ocean temperatures have to do with land that is 1000 miles from any ocean?

It takes 8 minutes for the light of the sun to reach earth. So probably 8 minutes.

Atmosphere retains heat..otherwise you'd die come night fall lol

The core also gives heat, so it would take a little longer than you think. There's a reason the ice moons have water under the surface...heat from within.

Probably quick flash freeze, same thing that happened in the ice age.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17884534


Oh, really?

First off, what is so different about water and air; in your imaginary world, does water have a heat capacity and air does not? What about solids? Are you aware or not that warmth is maintained in the soil and rock for a surprisingly long time?

Second, assume your idiotic description is true; the atmosphere instantly chills, and the only source of heat through twelve-odd hours of night is the ocean. Sucks to be in Minnesota, then!

But even on the coast, we're talking a transfer of radiant energy on the magnitude of the continuous detonation of thermonuclear weapons just off-shore. In your fantasy scenario, the atmosphere is freezing solid in minutes, but before it can fall as oxygen and nitrogen snow on the landscape, a blast of heat from the nearest large body of water vaporizes it again.

Do you know what a storm cell is? Do you understand, even, what causes winds? Can your imagination encompass what would happen if all of the continental air masses were to become rapidly chilled to near-zero, falling swiftly to the ground, whilst ocean-warmed air masses rush into the void?



The post you responded to was an approximation. As a first order, yes, atmosphere chills over the night, but it doesn't chill by more than tens of degrees. And themostasis is enhanced by bodies of water, as well as rocks and soil (which are poor thermal conductors so even though they are deep thermal reservoirs, they aren't going to make a significant difference over the course of a single night.) And over the course of a night, night breezes blow in from the warmer sea air.

And to move back to the original post -- over the first twelve hours of the sun going out, those events will proceed almost identically with any average night. The major difference is that it won't get any better with morning.

That's when you start calculating in the available reservoirs. I haven't looked at it, but I suspect the atmosphere would freeze out on the scale of a couple of weeks. The seas would freeze more slowly. The Earth itself has both internal radionuclides and the residual heat of gravitational collapse, and the time scale before deep caves turn properly Plutonic will be on the hundreds of millions of years.
