How earths tilt causes seasonal change?

Zeenath PV asked: how earths tilt causes seasonal change?

Answer:

image The climate on earth is mainly determined by the distance from sun and how much sunlight (and heat radiations) is received by earth. The relative duration of day and night as well as the climate is greatly dependant on the tilt of the earth’s axis with respect to its plane of orbit around sun and the elliptical shape of earth
