Significance

In 2007, scientists proposed that the start of the Younger Dryas (YD) chronozone (10,900 radiocarbon years ago) and late Pleistocene extinctions resulted from the explosion of a comet in the earths atmosphere. The ET event, as it is [...]

Nice Dice?: The Bos disputes Harvard

It is safe to say The Bos is becoming obsessed. Someone please count and let me know, but I believe he has four publications this year seeking to undermine the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Over time he has published more than a dozen. Today he is back in PNAS — alone — and in [...]

Unfiltered: Surovell – Holliday in PNAS, 2009

To a great degree the Tusk itself was a response to my frustration with Todd Surovell and Vance Holliday’s botched 2009 PNAS journal article, “An independent evaluation of the Younger Dryas extraterrestrial impact hypothesis,” published three months before this blog began.

Despite my early understanding of the sloppy work of the authors, however, I did [...]

PNAS: Five-Year study rips spear from back of YDB hypothesis

 

iPaper_embed(’106210252′, ‘key-2i68bycjgm0wdjsmqc1j’, ’600′, ’450′); Working on getting the paper. [Update: Got it above}

This appears to be the long hoped for independent, intentional, blind, professional and reproducible confirmation of the original 2007 findings of the Younger Dryas Boundary team.

Independent evaluation of conflicting microspherule results from different investigations of the Younger Dryas [...]

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 — [...]
