NEW RULES FOR THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE YEAR IN COUNTRIES FROM TROPICAL ZONE
Keywords:Four Seasons, New Four Seasons; New Four Seasons in Tropics, Tropical Astronomy, The Solar Zenith Theory, Paradoxical Variation of Solar Day
The main proposal of this text is the recognition of the new seasons of the year for tropical countries. In the textbooks of tropical countries we teaches and learns the seasons as if they were temperate zone countries. As this content was created in the temperate zone, or more precisely in Europe, the processes of colonization of the tropical countries practiced by European countries, only means that this content is repeated even if it is not correct and even if it does not make any practical sense there. Besides the scientific misunderstanding, it is necessary to correct through education the periods and calendars of the four seasons of the countries of the tropical zone. The cultural issues of each locality should be taken into account without the simplification that there is no winter in the tropics or there is summer throughout the all year long. The region is large enough to house different proposals for locations with different climatic characteristics. We should not only use international conventions as if all regions of the planet had identical characteristics. Obviously, just as in the tropical zone things are different from the temperate zone, certainly in the polar zones things as different that two first. With the current speed and flow of information does not justify using an international convention that does not portray the reality of our country.
