    The length of the day is not changing enough for anyone to notice. They are not even sure which way the change will go (longer or shorter?)… I say who cares? because we are not going the be able to tell a difference anyway (I don’t have milliseconds on my watch, do you?) See article:

    Last I heard, Earth days and nights will gradually get longer. As the Moon drifts away from the Earth, the gravity with which it influences Earth’s rotation will weaken and thus the Earth will slow its rotation. There is also rock evidence that shows us that the Earth had shorter days in the past. Click the citation to read more about it.
