    Who'd have thunk it, runaway global climate change resulting in earthquakes.
    Or maybe that could cause runaway gravitational anomalies, and the Earth would end up with hundred mile deep dimples like a golf ball?

    Jeez, I thought nobody could be more ignorant about all this than Blasterbates, but you've shown that is wrong

    In which case the tides get affected as well.
    If the moon is an unstable orbit, it could end up colliding with the earth. On the plus side, it would make global warming a fairly moot point.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Well, if it hits us at the correct angle, global warming could be very real for a few hours/days as we move closer to the sun.
