Two Ivies in two months confirm YD impact: Pinter of Southern Illinois – Carbondale to NBC: “Fringe science,” questions integrity of National Academy of Sciences

A meteor or comet impact near Quebec heaved a rain of hot melted rock along North America’s Atlantic Coast about 12,900 years ago, a new study claims.
