Lets suppose for a second that our estimate of the energy for two colliding particles to implode into a black hole is much lower than we have estimated. Also, Hawking radiation simply a load of Language Removed. Two very seemingly fictional ideas, but bear with me. So we fire up the LHC and we build small black holes that don't evaporate and sink to the center of the eart, and very slowly start accumulating mass. Her's the question... what could we do in this situation to prevent the inevitable destruction of earth? Get out your thinking caps and come up with some nice insane solution. I have no clue, other than bombarding the center of the earth with a much larger black hole moving several times the escape velocity of the earth, if that would even be possible or work.
