“If heat rises, why is the North Pole so cold?”

“If heat rises to the top why is the north pole the coldest place on earth?” was posted on Twitter by Tiffany Janay. “If heat rises, why is the North Pole so cold?” was posted on Reddit—Shittyaskscience on March 16, 2012. “If heat rises, why is the North Pole so cold?” was posted on AnandTech on March 17, 2012.
   
There are several answers to this question. A similar question could be asked of mountains, where it is often colder at the top than at the bottom.

The problem is that the Coriolis effect bends the hot air headed for the North pole causing the trade winds where heat is traded for rain. The result of that is that rain falling at the pole, because the heat has been lost, freezes and becomes snow. The snow makes the pole cold. Fortunately, however, because the North pole pulls on the South pole and visa versa, the Earth has become an oblate spheroid, or some such which means that the cold air from the pole slides down the curvature of the Earth, but not too fast because of the flattened arch. This helps to keep the pole cold by preventing all the cold air from running out very fast. One day, as the poles keep pulling on each other and flattening the Earth, it will in fact be as flat as a pancake and therefore also huge. There will be room for trillions of people and you will be able to travel to the other side of the world by digging a hole.

If heat rises, why is the north pole cold and Australia so hot?

I figured it’d be one of the hotter places

Because, Calvin, contrary to the way maps are designed, north is not “up”. The sun is up, which is why it’s hot…all our heat goes up to the sun.
