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’ [...]
Sliding Spring Update: Getting closer
I’m getting dragged into the future again. But click above for a fascinating report.
It brought to mind: He who shall not be named in Science: Dr. V. If Dr. V had said we might see such a thing in our lifetime [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
[See comments: Boslough responds!]
Boslough et al’s recent paper gives no less than nine separate citations to Todd Surovell’s 2009 publication: An independent evaluation of the Younger Dryas extra-terrestrial hypothesis. The multiple references are not surprising given that the Surovell paper has become a totem of Boslough and other’s crusade to end research into the [...]
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 ever [...]
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 [...]
Highly recommended reading
Below is a neat little overview of the work of Mike Baillie and others to define a cause for the worldwide climate downturns of: 3195 BC, 2354 BC, 1628 BC, 1159 BC, 207 BC, 44 BC, and 540 AD. It is found here on a website devoted to liberalizing [...]
