Imagine you are on a walking type platform at an airport where you are walking with the platform where it moves you faster walking with......than against. This would be the same concept as if we were walking on earth as we are walking with, or against the rotation of the earth..........or so it seems as the earth and the air are all moving with the rotation of the earth.
Why can't we walk to our destination faster and with less effort walking WITH the rotation of the earth and why doesn't it take more effort as it would on the walking platform to walk against the rotation of the earth? Same with driving long distances. Why is it the same distance taking the same amount of fuel while walking on the platform takes more energy and speed walking the opposite direction?
