Probably not, it would not even be on the same scale as the original event surely.
We have nowhere near enough power.

Nothing will happen, it'll just be another day except we'll have some fantastic new found knowledge on our beginnings and how things work in the Cosmos, why people want to put a stop to the pursuit for knowledge I don't know

Black holes are still a mystery but as I see it, they require some sort of fuel to keep going.
If there was a black hole to form, I would think something similar to what the sun is composed of would be required to perpetuate it.
It just might be a matter of shutting down the process fueling its creation. The earth is a mishmash of all natural elements. Without some purified concentration of a given substance I don't believe the black hole could make it out of the area related to the purified matter that created it.
I'm not a scientist, but just the action/reaction equation should apply.
Take away the fuel or introduce impurities and the baby is contained or forces to fizzle out.
I may be stubborn, and I know I'm ill-informed
