Why are our poles covered with ice?

    Our poles are ice covered because the rotation and tilt of the planet in relation to the position of the sun. For large chunks of the year the poles do not receive any direct sunlight. The sun hits the Earth most directly around the equator and does not get much of a chance to shine on the poles keeping them icy cold.
