The moon stabilizes the earth on it's axis. If we had no moon the earth would "tilt" unpredictably. Constant changes in the axis could mean the equator becomes the north pole one day and the south pole the next. This would cause drastic temperature changes in your neighborhood, 90 degrees F one day and - 10 F the next. Not suitable for life. If a meteor destroys the moon, we die.
