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.

Rise of the Zombie: Harvard Discovers Evidence for Major Earth Impact at Younger Dryas Initiation (~12,875 BP)

 

Update: As published in PNAS in July, 2013

“The [Younger Dryas Boundary] theory has reached zombie status,” said Professor Andrew Scott from the Department of Earth Sciences at Royal Holloway. “Whenever we are able to show flaws and think it is dead [!], it reappears with new, equally […]

Holy Hagiography!: Boslough “Jonesed” By Sandia Labs

I have seen some fawning press releases in my day but this is the most obsequious schlock I have ever encountered. Mark or his mum must have stayed up real late writing this one. I seriously doubt any synthesis rebuttal paper containing so little original work (What did kill all those animals? Global warming?) has […]

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 […]

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.

Dutch Diamonds Demand Extraordinary Explanations

The Aalsterhut / Hut van Mie Pils

The recent paper from van Hoesel et al., Nanodiamonds and wildfire evidence in the Usselo Horizon postdate the Allerød-Younger Dryas Boundary, confirming nanodiamonds in the Dutch Younger Dryas Boundary (YDB), or Usselo Horizon, establishes a cynical new low for the intellectual integrity of […]
