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 — [...]

Why is it excellent?   Because perhaps it will inspire people to take this phenomena [...]

Terribly interested. So was another scientist he said, Dr. Richard Firestone. I hit the search on Alta Vista and lo and behold, [...]
