As far as I am concerned the distance of the moon from earth has an effect upon our climate because as it moves further away the Earths wobble will increase.
A greater effect on climate would be that caused by the process which is causing the Moon to recede. As the Moon moves away it is stealing rotational energy from the Earth. It is making days get longer.

Since you have gone completely off topic; if the wobble were reduced it would result in a global climate less affected by changes in obliquity. But obliquity is not the only factor which affects insolation.

I understand that part but as presented in the 3rd response by me in the first page of this thread...

"New research concludes that the known wobbles in Earth's rotation caused global ice levels to reach their peak about 26,000 years ago, stabilize for 7,000 years and then begin melting 19,000 years ago, eventually bringing to an end the last ice age."

Accompanied is an external link to that quote.

On the same page you responded with....

"I suppose very large vectored thrust engines near the poles would work."

Thank you for that response but what else hypothetically?

Nothing in particular that comes to mind.
Certainly nothing that has anything to do with this tiny object.

One does not go off topic when one relates the topic over three response in a short interval even if a member responds between them.

What about a ring or perhaps two rings around the planet equivalent to scale to that of Saturn's rings arranged in a specific way?

Or placing another object in close orbit around earth say well within the moons orbit of substantive size.

Again I am just curious.

I don't know if a ring would help stabilize Earth's axis. The effect may depend on the revolution of the Moon around the Earth. Similarly, another object may not do it either. It's possible either situation would make the wobble more.

This is going to sound kind of fringe but consider a Gyroscope?

Stabilizing the planets wobble would pertain to many factors but creating a condition in which the wobble was stabilized would alter Earths environment.


Probably make it more tropical throughout.

It would reduce variations in insolation due to changes in obliquity. Very long term changes.

Want to work on circularizing Earth's orbit next?

Your "wobble" does in fact have something to do with gyroscopes. See also nutation and precession.

I understand that it would be physically impossible today to rule out all these effects but what about on paper?

To me anyway it seems possible.

I mean what would the Earth be like if there was no Moon?

That's no moon...it's a space station.
