Crater research team reveals tentative evidence at 2019 AGU
I’ve previously posted my frustration with the silence concerning the presumably on-going research to characterize and date this extraordinarily young impact crater in Greenland. I’ll put that rant aside, and repeat the establishment line here (unchanged since the discovery): The cosmic impact crater creating, climate changing, 5-mile deep, 19-mile wide, bowl of molten rock is…
Hiawatha Discovery Team member Anders Bjork tweets 3D crater model
As most crater heads know, a “central peak” within a bowl shaped depression is diagnostic of a large “complex crater” resulting from a highly energetic (to say the very least) cosmic collision. Though NASA made an effort to point out the subtle peak features of Hiawatha Crater beneath a mile of erosive ice, the…
Science communicators give tongue to cats
In addition to the recent history of the earth, its animals, and mankind, the Hiawatha Crater discovery may have something else to teach us. The Tusk finds the real-time sociological implications of the crater as fascinating and instructive as the feature itself. I’m obsessed by what the new information reveals about the motivations and…
A recurring thread as things develop in the short term
What a week. The announcement of the Hiawatha Crater is hands down the most important development in the eight year history of the Tusk. Lest I remind you, when your blog’s tagline is “Exploring abrupt climate change induced by comets and asteroids during human history”, and Science publishes a feature article titled: Ice Age…
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…
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….
Sediments date to Younger Dryas comet impact quake
One of the best things about the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis is finding catastrophic features that may date to the event, but have not yet been directly connected with it. Today I submit one of the finest examples: The Great Lake Tahoe Comet Tsunami. Its is a well-published and uncontroversial fact that in the prehistoric…
Mark Boslough makes prescient calculation in 2013 paper
A persistent critic of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis and the Comet Research Group has lately gone quiet on our favorite subject. As the supporting papers and independent confirmations have rolled in, Mark “The Bos” Boslough, is scarcely heard from. His last report even seemed a clumsy attempt to scramble on board with a…
Miami Beach "impact crater" goes entirely unstudied
If you ever suspected something may be wrong with science look no further. In 2012 brave citizen of Miami Cory Boehne noted that just south of the Port of Miami ship channel, less than two miles from downtown Miami Beach in 30′ of water, was the signature of a cosmic collision: A complex impact…
Top Science story in 2018 receives zero attention or follow-up in 2019
Fourteen months ago the Tusk could not have been happier. Science Magazine not only addressed the Younger Dryas Hypothesis for the first time in a decade, but did so in a lavish, well-written article. The article accompanied the announcement of what seemed could be the long sought ‘smoking gun’ of the YDIH: A massive…
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…
Welcome to the permanent host page for the most comprehensive bibliography and free paper archive of scientific literature concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The effort was compiled in a collaboration between the Tusk and Mr. Marc Young, an Australian Archaeology & Enviro-Sci undergrad who performed most of the meticulous work. Significantly, this page…
Younger Dryas Impact Platinum peaks found again in Southern Hemisphere
NY Post Gizmodo Quartz Francis Thackeray   This confirmation of a South African platinum layer from the Younger Dryas Impact was particularly welcome for several reasons.  First, it is another confirmation of evidence for  the impact in the Southern Hemisphere, following the Pilauco paper from Chile in March of this year. Second, the lead…
Hat tip from Steve Garcia posted December 31st on the Tusk
Only at the Cosmic Tusk can you expect to see a major global announcement by NASA scooped by six weeks. Thanks to our blog’s most dedicated contributor, Steve Garcia: You heard it here first. See other, non-prescient, contemporaneous coverage here: NBC:  Immense crater may have been found deep under Greenland’s ice sheet PhysOrg: NASA finds possible…
Second feature found inland of Hiawatha may be hinted 2nd Greenland crater
Longtime Tusk buddy and dedicated Catastrophist Steve Garcia went crater hunting and located IMHO a great candidate for the second crater hinted at by NASA scientist Dr. Joe MacGregor of the Hiawatha Discovery Team. He was thoughtful to send the Tusk the first image below of the suspect dimple beneath a mile of ice….
Davias and Harris at Cintos.org vindicated
Wow. The cascade of stupefying new discoveries continues. A paper published today in the Journal of Great Lakes Research provides evidence from gravity anomalies that Saginaw Bay in Michigan is a remnant feature of an impact into an ancient ice sheet. This and the recent discovery of Hiawatha Crater make for an interesting configuration….
