What if Earth Started Spinning Backwards

Let's assume earth slows down to reverse direction, everything would go flying to the east, so the whole process will leave a huge mess.

This Backward spinning of the earth is termed as Retrograde motion. Now, to understand the effects of this Retrograde motion on earth. Scientists performed some simulations. In these simulations the some noticeable changes are as follows:

What if Earth started Spinning Backwards

1. Directions of winds and oceans currents

Directions of winds and oceans currents reversed causing changes in climatic conditions. This resulted in a much greener earth as the world's deserts shrank from 42 million square kilometers to 31 million square kilometers.

2. Decrease in Global Warming

At present, rising level of carbon dioxide is contributing to global warming but in the retrograde world with more trees to absorb carbon dioxide, the global mean temperature dropped by about 0.2 degree Celsius. Thus, considerably lowering th effects of global warming.

3. Change in Rainfall Pattern

The rainfall pattern also changed. As a result, the great Sahara desert and the Arabian desert got covered in trees and grasses. While never seen before deserts emerged in southern Brazil and Argentina.

These are the three major changes that Earth would experience and our life would totally change. Tell us below who can make our earth spins backwards.
