Which reminds me of the obvious set of solutions to the problem that
nobody at Torino even dared to mention: Measures to stop the
decelleration of the Earth's rotation and to synchronize the rotation of
Earth with atomic time. Why should we remain satisfied with a variable
length of day for the next 10000 years?

We could start off with blowing the moon into bits, to reduce tidal
friction from lunar gravity (environmental/psychological impact
cussioned by installation of artificial moon light and tidal pumping),
followed by attaching a system of attitude control thrusters to the
crust of the Earth (in some yet to be conceived environmentally-friendly

Project LunarTick ... Let's give the International Earth Rotation Service
some serious power!
