    So when you jump three meters you pull up on the earth a billionth the width of a proton..... times that by 7 billion people .. so seven proton diameters ... but when 7 billion people land after jumping 11cm they push it away half the width of a proton (i know he says hydrogen atom but thats just a proton anyways) ... so in total humans can move the earth 7 protons up and half a proton down.

    But he considered only about jumping, it means during the mass jump earth will slightly displace but when the mass will come back to it's original place due to gravitation which infers that the earth and the mass will come to their initial places, i.e. the time when the jump started.
