      I believe the Tsar Bomba carried 50Mt of T.N.T., not 40Mt (was designed up to 100Mt).

      Very sorry to mention it this late but the Tsar bomb had an estimated power of 50-52 MTNS of TNT while the actual blast resulted in 54-58 MTNS of TNT equivalent. The Jekil-Hyde chain that was abandoned in process i.e. using another block of raw uranium 258 would double the destructive power. The problem of explosions and implosions is that the moment they go beyond the atmosphere the energetic force is lessened. Wouldn't that imply that a thermonuclear detonation of this projected blast would also exit the Earth's atmosphere and the destruction would not cause that dreadful effects?

The radiation from the sun retained more the more greenhouse gases there are. Humans produce extreme amounts of greenhouse gases. Though climate change is ultimately a natural process the earth goes through, it is undeniable that humans are speeding up that process. This decade saw some of the hottest summers around the globe ever.
