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

Search Results for: hancock

The Comet Research Group crowdfunding effort announced on the Tusk last month, and originally scheduled for November 1st, was pushed back in the interest of avoiding the pending election hysteria. The new date of Monday, November 14th also helps place the launch at a more promising time, a day before a key appearance of author…
With Graham Hancock and Randall Carlson in Sedona, Arizona
The Tusk is back from a wonderful four-night stay in Sedona, Arizona, where I gave  a presentation on the Younger Dryas Impact. Wordviewz Media and HowTube’s conference was another milestone on my own journey from hard-headed, meat eating, materialist; to hard-headed, meat eating, materialist…who loves hanging out with the Arizona “crystal crowd.” God bless…
Broecker, Shermer and Defant reverse opposition to Younger Dryas Impact
A little blue bird tweeted this weekend that the Younger Dryas Impact was off her radar since she was “not aware of widespread community acceptance of the proposal.” I’m not aware of any books on that topic – I believe most of the discussion has been in journal articles. I’m also not aware of…
Pro-science skeptic Dr. Marc Defant now supporting #YDIH based on Powell book
Dr. Marc Defant did a great thing this morning by announcing on Twitter and his blog that he had come around to support the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. As I told Marc, my respect for his intellectual integrity soared when I saw his tweet….
Shermer reads Comet Research Group paper, tweets Hancock
Michael Shermer, Founding Publisher of Skeptic Magazine, tweeted Graham Hancock an extraordinary note this week. Shermer announced that based on last week’s blockbuster Abu Hureyra paper he was persuaded to re-think his position on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. What a welcome development in the long effort to win the hearts and minds of persistent…
A heterodox communication from Chandra Wickramasinghe to the Lancet
As regulars know, this is the 2nd communication this week from living scientific martyr Dr. Chanda Wickramasinghe to the Tusk, and this one is perhaps the more pressing. Chandra’s note below, shared first on the Tusk, is to the prestigious medical journal The Lancet and a technical communication concerning the increasingly global scourge of Coronavirus….
University of Kansas professor claims bias in The Bib
You would think the Tusk and Marc Young’s effort to develop an easily accessible, comprehensive bibliography of all peer-reviewed literature concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis would prove a pretty uncontroversial matter. Indeed the effort might be appreciated by anyone interested in the subject, regardless of their support for the published evidence of global…
Tusk challenges Rogan to question Tyson regarding the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis
The Tusk recently appeared as a guest on the UnchartedX YouTube series. It was fun and I have a lot of respect for Ben’s work to publicize the YDIH and the Comet Research Group. But if had to do the podcast over again, I would have made more than a passing reference to an…
Martin Sweatman goes deep into Younger Dryas bibliography 2007 - 2009
Martin Sweatman, when not writing a profound book, is building quite a nice catalog of videos concerning the YDIH and related subjects. This one is particularly welcome and represents the best walk-though of the debate, paper by paper, twist by turn, since Hancock’s careful narration here. This is invaluable science communication and should be…
Bill Napier sent the Tusk a note regarding Joe Rogan’s unforgettable debate-style podcast on the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Bill’s message is posted below my rant here. His informed correction of Marc Defant’s self-styled skeptical authority on comets is priceless and instructive. A cultural genre of all-purpose professional “skeptics,” like Defant and Shermer, have emerged…
According to Hancock
I recently discovered an essay from Graham Hancock that manages to convey both the profound intellectual significance — and petty scholastic drama — of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis since 2007. Hancock doesn’t note his good timing, but as he writes in 2017 it is the 10th anniversary of the Comet Research Group’s Acapulco AGU presentations…

Joe Rogan hosts epic 3.5 hour podcast debating the Younger Dryas impact
Almost 24 hours later and I am still catching my breath. Last night’s Joe Rogan Experience podcast was pure heaven for the Tusk. As folks might have noted, the world’s most popular interview podcast has taken a long-standing interest in our subject. Graham Hancock has appeared on Rogan six times in recent years, I…
George A. Howard is an original proponent and widely cited avocational expert in the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. He has studied the globe changing, civilization starting impact for 25 years.  In 1998 George was contacted by William Topping and Richard Firestone, who saw a 1997 essay he published on the early web concerning the…
