January We're Closest To Sun Why So Damn Cold?

Popular Science
We’re three million miles closer to the sun in January than we are in July. So why isn't it hot?
"... it turns out that our distance to the sun actually has very little to do with the temperature we experience. It has far more to do with the angle at which the light hits us."

I found it interesting--globally speaking--in January the Earth receives 7% more rays then in July. Hence why I thought the Northern Hemisphere would be a more temperate place to live in July.


Check out the article for the reason why.
