What about the oceans getting poisoned by radioactive waste and the Phillipines getting radioactive fallout? We might not destroy the Earth but we might have to live with a poisonous Earth, no? 🤔

You are trying to say that radioactive mass of water in an ocean won't lead to any harm? And the ecosystem inside the water won't be affected and won't affect the ecosystem globally? Aren't we all connected?

So all I could gather from this video is that it’s totally fine to detonate a nuclear bomb in the ocean

Science is making empty predictions that you don't test. This is science fiction at best because it doesn't follow the scientific method

I'm sorry I'm incredibly late on commenting to this video. Nothing happens to the Earth at first, but imagine what the radioactive water would do? It will mutate almost the entire half of the Pacific waterlife, if left unattended. Then if the humans East seafood from there, we are done for. Trust me, nothing good can come from nukes, wherever they are exploded on Earth.

Nothing happens because its underwater, everyone knows that if tnt or other explosive stuff is underwater nothing happens... right?

So we as humanity really dont have as massive an impact as some think we have on the earth and galaxy as a whole. And the earth isnt as fragile as we think it is. Yes yes yes I know there are some weak and fragile places and species like New York, liberals and the stock market but compared to the grand scheme of things we are but dust. Satire aside this was very informative and thanks for you time in creating this 👍😋

Someone do this doomsday math.
Drop nukes along trench, at only a depth which would be effective. Could they push out on the trench, causing the walls to collapse, squeezing all of the trenches volume of water up into the ocean.

“The strongest forces humanity can unleash are laughable compared to the forces of nature, the planet is too big, it just doesn’t care.” Remember that when they try to push man made global warming/climate change/whatever they decide to call it depending of the day
