    I am interested to know what would happen to the Earth if the Moon disappeared.
    What would happen to the Ocean and the tides and life on Earth?

    Without tidal action to stir nutrients and literally "pump" coastal life, we'd lose most of those species.

    Polar shorelines would ice up and have no cause to clear unless melted.

    Also, the nights would be significantly darker, and nocturnal animals like owls would starve unless they lived near cities.
