The Moon is Shrinking

Just caught this article on Yahoo! Science News.  It is interesting to me simply because I am interested in geological processes.  There are always new things to be learned even with our closest neighbor.  What struck me most about this article is the following:
The moon's not going to disappear and its shrinkage won't affect the Earth in any way, Watters stressed.
Is the state of science education in this country such that this item must be stressed?
