An example of a small effect of great importance...

Scientists have shown that the moon is moving away at a tiny, although measurable distance from the earth every year.  If you do the math, you can calculate that 85 million years ago, the moon was orbiting the earth at a distance of about 35 feet from the earth's surface.  This would explain the death of the dinosaurs...the tallest ones, anyway.
