1. We're not nearly that powerful

However, make that a billion or two years down the road, that will happen as the sun turns into a red giant.

We might be powerful enough to raise the level of the oceans and drown our coastal cities. We might even be powerful enough to create a huge band of Death Valley type desert around the planet's midsection.

We are not powerful enough to boil rocks.
