Exploring abrupt climate change and pandemic induced by comets and asteroids during human history

This is off-topic but I feel appropriate on the anniversary to share a personal experience from 9/11. Pam and I were horrified from the left bank of the Potomac to feel the plane hit the Pentagon. I took this creepy photo from our hotel room after the impact. See the Twin Towers? I will[..
The Tusk has characteristically hit a summer communication drought. But that doesn’t mean we can’t toss up a YouTube here and there from the coast. It’s welcome to see college courses fully integrating the Younger Dryas Impact into their thinking about the Younger Dryas and climate change. Here’s a great effort from Middlebury College.[..
Atmospheric Covid Entombed in Cosmic Dust
In a review of all the relevant key evidence the most parsimonious explanation seems to be that COVID-19 came from space [2,3], just as have many other similar suddenly emergent pandemics past and recent: such as the Spanish Flu 1918-1919 and the other pandemics that punctuate history over millennia, and in particular over the[..
Long published field evidence supports Bronze Age Bavarian impact
The Chiemgau impact in Bavarian Germany stands out as a particularly sympathetic “martyr” crater. The evidence for a Bronze Age euro-apocalypse is sincerely published and well established as a legitimate hypothesis based on decades of meticulous fieldwork, but entirely dismissed because the proponents believe the impact was relatively recent in geological terms. The authors[..
Crater man Christian Koeberl denies impact crater
To gauge the depth of the anti-science pathology surrounding the Younger Dryas Impact, it is instructive to review a single quote from an oft-quoted ‘expert’ in cosmic impact craters, Dr. Christian Koeberl. In 2018, shortly after NASA announced in Science the discovery of the Hiawatha Crater in NW Greenland, Koeberl provided his opinion, which[..
Younger Dryas Impact cataclysm evidence exceeds that of UFO's
It has been proposed that the Younger Dryas period/GS-1 was initiated by a cosmic impact, for which there is indirect and debated evidence in a large number of sites in the NH surrounding the North Atlantic region (Kennett et al., 2015). A very significant Platinum (Pt) spike has been identified in the GISP2 ice[..
Authoritative and readable overview of the Younger Dryas Impact debate published in Earth Science Reviews
Indefatigable genius and digital friend of the Tusk, Dr. Martin Sweatman, authored a surprise blockbuster this week. Below is a peer-reviewed and fully accepted pre-online synthesis overview of the Younger Dryas Impact controversy since the very first paper in 2007. ‘The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis: review of the impact evidence’ concludes…[..
The sciency internet is alive with consensus condemnation and universal damnation for a new paper from Rhawn Joseph, now dubbed the “Tiger King of Mars.” In the article below, Joseph et al. continues a radical break from conventional interpretations of Martian photography, believing a number of odd features photographed by the Martian rovers are…wait[..
Wonderful 2009 show available again -- but watch quickly!
It seems like a lazy cheat to post YouTube videos two weeks in a row, instead of writing in-depth subject articles on the Tusk. But who has the time for that? And anyway the video below is a particularly special communication. It is special because WGBH\PBS no longer stream this 2009 episode on their[..
Hmmm...
Avi Loeb is no household name, but he wants to be. The chairman of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard has appeared on more than 50 podcasts since the start of the year. Given a minimum of one hour per podcast, I’d ask for a week’s pay back if I were Harvard. The guy[..
Internet wag zeros in on real science
This is a priceless video spoof concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. And surprisingly, it is directed at the most timely part of the actual debate — the most recent attack on the hypothesis from Sun et al. — which it manages to DESTROY. https://t.co/WQtQFoDsRk — George Howard (@CosmicTusk) February 6, 2021[..
Bill Napier's work to warn of increased risk described by Evan Gough of Universe Today
In a nutshell, Napier’s study shows how comets are likely to fragment and lose considerable mass during encounters with the inner Solar System. The debris trail can expand to a cross section larger than Earth, increasing the odds of impacts with Earth. Also, the debris has considerable impact energy. But over time, that energy[..
Life and disease in space confirmed by Russians in 2018
In 2018, on January 23, Russia was first to publish the discovery of space based life obtained by appropriate technical means in a collaborative international scientific effort. Based on genes swiped with a tampon from the OUTSIDE of an International Space Station window, three respected Russian laboratories, and twelve well-credentialed scientists, published a peer-reviewed[..
New media creatives share the adventure
The only thing more fun than touring Egypt top to bottom is making the trip with creative people that record the adventure and share it with the world. The Tusk is thrilled to have the memories and interpretations of our wonderful expedition out there to enjoy for years to come. Lemme know if I’ve[..
Tusk racks up two co-author citations PER WEEK in 2020
If you can’t toot your own horn on New Years, when can you? As a citizen scientist the Tusk is darn proud — and thankful to the credentialed lead authors — to close 2020 with exactly 100 co-author citations. More interesting than my navel, perhaps, is the trend in citations concerning the Younger Dryas[..
