Since it’s formation, the Earth has been revolving west to east on its axis. If one day our planet started rotating in the opposite direction, it would no longer be the Earth as we know it. How different would that Earth be? Why could your home turn into a desert? Here is what would happen if the Earth started spinning backwards.

You don’t notice it, but our planet spins pretty fast 460 meters per second ( 1509 feet per second ) as measured at the equator. a sudden change of direction would cause disastrous winds and massive waves. Together, these abnormal weather conditions would wipe out nearly everything above the ground. Imagine our planet reversed its direction billions of years ago. you had seen the sun and the moon rise in the west and set in the east and you had never believe that Sahara could be a desert.

How different would our planet turn out to be? Short answer the reversed speed would make the Earth greener. Long answer this new rotation would change winds and oceans current, and that would shift the planet’s climate entirely. Oceans work as global climate control, distributing the Sun’s heat all over the Earth. They divert moisture from driest, hottest badlands and carry rainfall to thorny jungles. If the Earth reversed its rotation, one very important climate-driving current would disappear from the Atlantic Ocean. Instead a different current would surface in the Pacific and become responsible for distributing heat around the globe. This new current would make the deserts retreat from Africa and Eurasia. you had to go to the other side of the planet to do some quad biking on the golden landscape. More specifically, to Brazil. The U.S. would also get very arid in the south. But none of the new barrens would be anywhere close to how dry the Sahara Desert is now. There’d be much more vegetation covering the planet.

Hey, that’s more oxygen for all of us. But those living in Western Europe would be in for a shock. The Pacific current would push a lot of cold water that way, bringing freezing winters to the region. Russia on the other hand, would warm up and take a break from being the coldest country on Earth. Life on the reverse spinning Earth would be different, too.

In the oceans, Cyanobacteria would dominate all over other phytoplankton species. Billions of years ago , the oxygen-pumping Cyanobacteria invented photosynthesis and transformed our planet’s atmosphere. Maybe having so much having so much Cyanobacteria on Earth would alter the atmosphere even further, filling it up with too much oxygen for us to even exist. Let’s just leave our planet to spin the way it does.
