Lee Bement on the Clovis Comet

I happened upon this dated but interesting video of Dr. Leland C. Bement of the University of Oklahoma lecturing on the Younger Dryas Boundary hypothesis. The audio is painfully faint, and I am still watching it, but Bement is a careful, open-minded researcher who is contributing to the investigation. I wonder how his […]

Another informative blog!?!

I came across a well-researched and informative blog today summing up the recent findings and YDB science to date. I was so impressed by Abby Tabor’s post at Science Works Now, “New Evidence for Climate-Changing Cosmic Impact,” I have added a permanent link to her on the side-bar.

Tabor it seems was driven — shudder […]

Chilton Raved at Watts Up

Rod Chilton of BCC Climate has a guest post on the Younger Dryas over at Watts Up With That that is lighting up the boards, and bringing some welcome new attention to our subject. It also seems that blog force Anthony Watts has taken an interest in the Younger Dryas Boundary Event, having posted three […]

Finally Available in PNAS: Very High Temperature Impact Melt Products: Evidence for Cosmic Impacts \ Airbursts 12,900 years ago

These scientists have identified three contemporaneous levels more than 12,000 years ago, on two continents yielding siliceous scoria-like objects (SLO’s),” said H. Richard Lane, program director of National Science Foundation’s Division of Earth Sciences, which funded the research. “SLO’s are indicative of high-energy cosmic airbursts/impacts, bolstering the contention that these events induced […]

Kerr on Limb: Science writer misleads peeps in public post

Distinguished Science writer Dr. Richard Kerr walked the plank this afternoon in response to this morning’s Knight Science Journalism Tracker inquiry of science writers.

Charles Petit’s casual post brought quick attention from the old-school dean of science writing. Kerr implored his press colleagues to, in effect: Move on, move on…There is nothing […]

Calling All Crickets: Knight Science Journalism Tracker Shouts-Out the YDB Hypothesis

Crickets….

Watts Up?

Big Media again tend to ignore PNAS report that comet blast – or blasts – renewed Ice Age, canceled Clovis culture, mammoths, giant beavers…

The authors worked mainly under grants from the NSF. It doesn’t give money to just anybody.

PNAS: Very High Temperature Impact Melt Products: Evidence for Cosmic Airbursts/Impacts at Younger Dryas

Well, well. A cat just leapt from the bag.

I don’t have an “as published” copy yet (despite being a co-author). But I will post one just as soon as I do.

See here for UCSB Press Release: Study Jointly Led by UCSB Researcher Finds New Evidence Supporting Theory of Extraterrestrial […]
