Are these sentences correct:
1-The temperature decreases as we move away from the eqautor.
2-As we move away from the eqautor, so the temperature decreases.

3-The temperature decreases proportionally as we move away from the equator.
4-The temperature decreases in the measure that we move away from the equator.

I am a non-native speaker. That gives me a right to be Miltonic!!!
Thanks (and, I'll try to avoid number 4 anyway!).
