Loose Goose: The Bos all over the map

Long ago the Tusk noted a fascinating 2010 missive from The Bos concerning the virtue of everyone (else) remaining intellectually flexible. Or, as he put it, having a willingness to “change your mind.” Here is the link and I have copied the text at the bottom.

The Bos’ statement has not aged well. [...]

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 [...]

Tusk hits Hill on Younger Dryas Boundary Event

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.

Extraordinary Evidence and Inexplicable Ignorance: Bunch (2012) and The Bos (2013)

 

Bunch

 Boslough

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 [...]

Earth to The Bos and Phil: The true cross-sectional area of the potentially dangerous material is greater than that of the original comet itself

 

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’ [...]

Le Bos, mais pourquoi pas la France?!

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.

Salt in the Wound: The Bos Not Reading Papers

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: An Open Letter to Sandia Labs

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 [...]
