Does the moon affect our climate?


Yes, the moon affects our climate in several ways. Astrophysicist explains that the moon's gravitational pull helps stabilize Earth's axial tilt, which in turn stabilizes our climate. Without the moon, Earth's axial tilt could vary much more, leading to severe seasonal temperature changes. This stability has allowed civilizations to develop as they have under relatively predictable climatic conditions 1.
