    The Czar Bomba was 100MT, it was tested in a neutered fashion @ 50MT because the Russians/Soviets thought it was overkill to use it at its full power in a test.

    TL;DR: Planet don't care. Your puny human weapons mean nothing. Earth sneezes, producing a hurricane that rips hundreds of kilometers of houses apart.But srsly. Huh-mans spend forever designing better ways of killing each other and if it were all spent getting us off this rather wet rock, we'd be halfway to Alpha Cen by now.But nah, humans would rather have big boom and deal with rainy cloud of cancer later.

    50000000 tons of tnt is like a 2km high cube of dynamite. It would cause tidal waves, a column of water would rise up for sure.
