Saw it mentioned in passing in a piece a few weeks back:
The wobble changes how the moon's gravity pulls on the world's oceans, so periods of exceptionally high tides are followed by exceptionally low tides 9.3 years later.

Research by NASA scientists suggests this cycle is likely to lead to major coastal flooding in the early 2030s, as extreme high tides meet accelerating sea-level rise.

Thought it might be worth making a reference to that because in a few years time people might forget the influence of the Moon on this. :)

We will have to climb a hill. At least we can move towards and away from water, unlike trees.
