Nice Dice?: The Bos disputes Harvard

It is safe to say The Bos is becoming obsessed. Someone please count and let me know, but I believe he has four publications this year seeking to undermine the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Over time he has published more than a dozen. Today he is back in PNAS — alone — […]

Melott 2013

We find that the increases in 14C and 10 Be at the time of the Younger Dryas are consistent with the airburst of a long-period comet of the suggested mass, making this a plausible scenario.

Mahaney 2013

The breakup in space of a comet or asteroid prior to impact could produce a surface or oceanic impact by the largest object, and hundreds of smaller fragments could create air-bursts affecting an entire hemisphere (Bunch et al. 2012). Approximately 90% of all ejecta from the main impact would fall within five crater radii, although […]

Scammed!: Harvard publishes salted samples [Sarcasm]

Large Pt anomaly in the Greenland ice core points to a cataclysm at the onset of Younger Dryas by George Howard

 

In yet another scurrilous feat of science sample salting, Dr. Allen West and his so-called “Younger Dryas Boundary Team” have now managed to clandestinely contaminate ice core samples from the Greenland Ice […]

Salt in the Wound: The Bos Not Reading Papers

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 […]
