Wave Shake with Dana Rohrabacher
The Tusk enjoyed a nice long chat this morning with Representative Rohrabacher (R-CA) regarding the Younger Dryas Boundary Event and catastrophism.
What a guy. Surfer, father of nine-year-old-triplets, libertarian conservative icon — and Vice Chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
It is telling to read competing journal articles regarding the Younger Dryas Boundary Event. For example below is the recent paper from The Bos, et al., and below that a publication from the YDB team the year before. (I was added as an author to that [...]
The Bos is Back!
Bos Mum on Mars
Update: Coma Just Dust…
Elenin: Sliding Spring backing off a bit…..
Elenin: Probability of Mars Impact 1-120 or so
These media scientists are just too much. Below is bad astronomer Phil Plait validating the Napier Astronomical Model for the Younger Dryas Impact(s) and refuting The Bos’ [...]
But why not France, Bos!?
The news release
Independent investigators have failed to confirm the reports of enhanced concentrations of spherules and platinum-group elements in YD boundary sediments.

Interhemispheric evidence of a cosmic impact [...]
Obviously, this whole “salting” thing from The Bos has got me hopping mad — and for good reason.
By implying that the sites were “salted,” The Bos raises the issue of fraud or conspiracy surrounding the modern date he got on his YDB carbon spherule from Gainey, Michigan. But there’s a problem with that [...]
Dear Mr. Singer:
Sandia Labs issued a news release on January 30, 2013, with a passage that requires a satisfactory explanation or I believe Sandia Labs has libeled myself [sic] and others researching the Younger Dryas Boundary Impact hypothesis. In the release, titled “Study rebuts hypothesis that comet attacks ended 13,000-year-old Clovis culture,” Sandia Labs published the following quote [...]
This afternoon former NASA geochemist Ted Bunch dropped the Tusk the note below. It is thrilling to see a core YDB researcher with a five decade track record [and here] willing to stand up to his bullies in frank and personal terms, outside the stilted literature and self-serving press releases.
The recent Boslough et al. paper and coordinated press [...]
ABSTRACT Intersection with the debris of a large (50-100 km) short-period comet during the Upper Palaeolithic provides a satisfactory explanation for the catastrophe of celestial origin which has been postulated to have occurred around 12900 BP, and which pre-saged a return to ice age conditions of duration 1300 years. The Taurid Complex appears to [...]
