Given the low amount of antimatter produced, that would probably take a storm far bigger than the Earth. So that's one climate change worry we shouldn't have to deal with. Which is good, given all we do have to deal with.

I didn't actually expect that the earth would be damaged.  I should have made it more obvious that I was using hyperbole.
