With the Moon moving away from Earth will the move cause more storms based land and ocean based to occur or will there be less storms as the Moons gravity effects Earth a little less?

I would think that if tides are based upon the closeness of the Moon to the Earth, then our terrestrial storms should be milder than at present.


But, what effect it might have upon gravity could be very interesting.

Here is an intresting find relating to the fluctuations of the moons gravity. Perhap these fluctuations are the cause for the tides on Earth.


Such moons located elsewhere in the Universe could set the criteria fo life existing on a planet as the fluctuations would create ebbs in a planets water ways that would stimulate life to have to work which then increases the lifeforms over all mass and ability to develop sentient thoughts.

They say that the earth’s tilt will get all messed up in other words unstable when the moon gets further away.  That’ll probably mess up the weather and seasons I would imagine too.  But then that won’t happen for years and years and by that time the sun will slowly be expanding and roast every thing like a marshmallow.
