Eeeeeeek!

Here we go againSometimes there is news that speaks ill of our known history or our future history.  Some reports even predict an early end to all of our known civilization.

The lastest comes from space, again.  This time from our friendly neighbor in the sky - the moon.  Yes, our moon is changing due to man's ego and arrogant lifestyle on the earth.

Moon is shrinking, say astronomers

(AFP) – 21 hours ago

WASHINGTON — The Man in the Moon has become the latest victim of contraction in the housing market.

See, it's all our fault.  Our Capitalistic greed is causing the moon to shrink.  Click on to read more, and the real reasons for this "shrinking".

So, the moon is shrinking on us?  The moon has a tremendous impact upon our tiny Earth.  Can we expect small or drastic changes to our lifestyles from this shrinkage that is now occurring?  The AFP article's title states the shrinking is now, is present, is an ongoing process. 

What lies in store for the future of humanity?!!?

Astronomers reporting on Thursday in the US journal Science said they had found previous undetected landforms which indicate that Earth's satellite has been shrinking... albeit by only a tiny amount.

The intriguing features, called lobate scarps, are faults created when the Moon's once-molten interior began to cool, causing the lunar surface to contract and then crinkle, they said.

Relative to the Moon's age, estimated at around 4.5 billion years, the contraction is recent, occurring less than a billion years ago, and is measured at about 100 metees [sic] (325 feet).

A BILLION YEARS AGO!?!?!?!

Yeah, I can see how they could confuse a billion years ago to something that his happening right now and is an ongoing process.
