Kerr Watch

Elapsed time since Richard Kerr failed to inform his Science readers of the confirmation of nanodiamonds at the YDB: 6 years, 2 months, and 5 days

Recent papers critical of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis: Daulton and Scott

 

I have provided some counter points below to the arguments made in the recent publications from Daulton and Scott (regular critics). However, I was particularly disturbed to see that the papers failed to include very significant confirmations of our work, for instance Adronikov 2016. Unlike Tian (2011) and Bement 2014. Daulton claims failure […]

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 […]

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 […]

YDB Co-Author Profile: Paul S. DeCarli

Paul DeCarli

Nick Pinter claims here that diamonds were misidentified in earlier YDB studies. The paper this month was Paul DeCarli’s first formal appearance with the YDB team but his presence as a co-author undermines Pinter’s accusation. DeCarli is a diamond pro. And more importantly he is an eager scientist more given […]
