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

Wave Shake with Dana Rohrabacher  The Tusk enjoyed a nice long chat this morning with Representative Rohrabacher (R-CA) regarding the Younger Dryas Boundary Event and catastrophism. What a guy. Surfer, father of nine-year-old-triplets, libertarian conservative icon — and Vice Chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. What more can a…

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.

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,…

Large Pt anomaly in the Greenland ice core points to a cataclysm at the onset of Younger Dryas    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 Sheet Project 2…
