Would such detonation be worse than Cracatoa to Earth ?
It would depend on as many factors as you could think of,and maybe some you'd never anticipate, or think to consider.Like at Bikini Atoll and Japanese fishermen.(the 3rd atomic bombing of the Japanese).
The Japanese and Americans are still studying 'survivor's' of Hiroshima and Nagasaki,as they still don't know 'all' there is about human responses to nuclear blast and fallout.
The fallout from Krakatoa wasn't radioactive,and it settled in a couple of years without incident,other than global cooling.
Americans have died from exposure to fallout in Utah,USA,especially if they smoked tobacco.
Today,all California wines are radioactive,courtesy of Fukushima's legacy.
You can eat Plutonium,but breathing it will kill you.
Paul Beckwith has advocated exploding nuclear bombs as a form of geoengineering to counter climate change.

Maybe nukes triggering earthquakes that then trigger volcanoes is in the realm of possibility, but it doesn't sound reasonable to me.
I believe that the adjoining tectonic plates would have to already possess stored stress(potential energy) of which the explosion could trigger slip, and release of this energy,otherwise it would just be like a pimple an an elephant's behind.

That's a heck of a long time to stop building there and slowly migrate away, or develop walls to hold back the seas, or reverse warming.

Even if things get really bad, they will very slowly get very bad, and humans are among the most adaptable species there is. The issue is worth pondering and acting on now, but not in ways that will usher in the terrible living conditions immediately.
Some scientists point to past 'abrupt' climate change,and don't rule out the possibility that it could happen again,which would make 'adapting' a bit more challenging.

There's your problem right there.

I just remember '[' 's' and '/' are all lower case. With those it's a standard construction.

If you get a plug in car your electricity usage could more than double.

It will be less energy than an ICE car though. Except for the embodied energy tied up in putting one more car on the road with a huge battery. Electricity we can try to make more of with a decent ER/EI. Up to a point. But liquid fuel we can't affordably make any more of. And it will soon be leaving us.

I'm driving 112-miles a month.A used Mitsubishi i-MiEV or 1st-gen LEAF would cover my needs really well.
I think I'd be looking at under $12/month for an EV. And 'theoretically' it would be zero-carbon.
My electric bill is typically $22 /month.$10 of that is just for being connected to the electric cooperative's grid.Other than a flat-fee of $10 /month for water,it's the only utility I have.

There's some part of BBCode that vBulletin doesn't support. Without doing the experiment I think it's tables:

If you get a plug in car you get a battery back for your house, or at least you should.

For an additional $4,000 or so you can get a chademo inverter that does like 3,000w.
