More info here and here Baillie Black Death and Tree Rings Coincident -Marc Young here- In the process of restoring this document from the library fire, I was unable to gain access to the original book titled New Light on the Black Death: The Cosmic Connection.

Mayan Calendar A Mike Baillie fan passed along this fascinating discovery last week and I hoisted the paper to the Tusk immediately.  Mike is on to something mighty interesting. Nowhere has anyone noted the corellation between the two early Mayan “Baktun” transitions and spikes in ice core chemistry from Greenland. Calendrical genius that he is, Mike even reverse engineers the…
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….
Dendrochronologist Mike Baillie on impacts more recent than Younger Dryas
Hear the British Library interview Dr. Baillie Jonny McAneney’s Tusk comment on his collaborator Mike Baillie’s paper: This is an important paper, but it is equally important to point out that scientific understanding has moved on in the decade or so since this was published. I have posted before on this site about the…
Patrick McCafferty, Irish history savant and co-author and collaborator of Mike Baillie’s, stars tonight in a Smithsonian Channel documentary concerning the mysterious history of Ireland in the 6th century AD. McCafferty with the assistance of another Tusk favorite, Dallas Abbott, decodes the available information and concludes that Halley’s comet was responsible for the island’s conversion…
The recent comments from Jonny on the Tusk are some of the most insightful internet analysis anywhere regarding the orbit of Comet ISON and somewhat related matters.  I recommend the developing thread to anyone who cares to stand in awe of intelligence beyond our own.   The painting on the left, by the 17th century Dutch painter Atlas van Stolk, depicts the…

I love this paper.  It’s in a great journal, chock full of well-sourced, multidisciplinary information, and written by a rock-solid expert in an immensely important field: Dendrochronology.  While other Dendrochronologists signed-up for the terribly political job of attempting to document slow and incremental temperature change over the ages, Mike Baillie became an expert in…
