Expert Answer:

The air in the equatorial regions is warmer as this region recieves maximum heat of the Sun. This warm air rises creating a low pressure region.
Now, the poles (or the region above 30 degree latitude on both sides) recieves lesser heat and so the air in those regions is cooler.
As the warm air rises, the cooler air from the poles moves in to take its place thereby creating a flow of wind from the northern and southern regions to the equator.
Hence, the uneven heating of the Earth causes a wind flow pattern on Earth.
