• I certainly don't want any pieces of it not burning up and landing in my backyard... you should see what happens to the coastal regions 2... not pretty!
  • it would affect the tides, the currents, the temperature, the weather, the animal territory and living areas and the coastlines.
  • SOMEHOW, it would AFFECT our planet... a related question: if people knew proper spelling, how would it affect Answerbag?
  • Catastrophe!
  • the tifes would no longer rise and fall, this would effect the fishing industry and require us to re-think our docks. then the ocean currents would experence subtle changes, with hugh effects. i am not sure how far the changes would go or how badly the effects would effect our weather. also without the moon our tilted axis would be less exaggerated...if still present at all. that would end or diminish seasonal weather. without seasons then wildlife would become dis-oriented. flowers and birds would be the first hit...then ice caps would experence steadier heat, melting them ...this would further destroy the ocean currents and cause very powerful weather patterens that could potentially end life on half the planet. then we would experience an ice age(we are still pulling out of our last ice age according to some scientist). everything about this planet would change as the ripple of results devastates ecosystems, weather, temperture, and living conditions. we would survive but lose much of our progress in science and technology
  • Certain human beings would no longer have anything to blame their weird behavior on.
  • If the moon was destroyed the axis of the earth would greatly change and the earth would spin out of control and be destroyed.This would happen within hours of the moon being destroyed.
  • No more romantic moonlit strolls on the beach, no more would werewolves howl, and the man in the moon would be disfigured and would never show his face again. A terrible predicament.
  • It would affect the tides. It would affect the lunar calendar. I think that's about all that it'll affect.
  • The answers about the lack of tides bring up the most important result. Without he ebb and flow of the oceans, a lot of sea life would cease. The tide lands are main reproductive areas for plants and animals. As well as a source of food for critters that don't breed there, land and sea critters both. Tidal forces also act on the Earth in other ways, the internal liguid parts, and even solid parts affecting earth quakes. More importantly, song writers would have to come up with a whole 'nother set of rhymes. The words 'spoon,' 'noon,' and 'June' would just sit around languishing, dreaming of their past glory, seeking consolation from 'goon,' who knows the enui of not being in a hit song. " Blue nothing of Kentucky keep on shinin" "Shine on, shine on harvest emptyness, up in the sky" " Fly me to the nowhere" The whole situation would drive me loony, ummm...
  • Any force powerful enough to destroy the moon is likely to destroy everything on the earth's surface. The moon's debris would wipe out anything accidentally left alive.
  • I image in would have a great impact of the circulation of the Earth's core along with the tectonic plates. Just a guess mind you.
  • No more free light at night. Awooooooooo!!!!!
  • *No tide *Man has to go at least to Mars or Venus to visit any other place than the Earth *No more werewolf films *Radio plays the song "Moonlight Shadow" by Mike Oldfield & Maggie Reilly from 1983, kids asking: What's Moonlight?
  • Depends on HOW it was destroyed. If it plowed into the earth, it would probably wipe all life off of the earth. If it were struck by a rogue object, it could be knocked out of its orbit, or broken up into a pretty set of rings to circle the earth. We'd lose much of but not all of our tides, which might intefere with many biological clocks throughout the biosphere. And of course, sea turtles and grunion would be lost.
