Mark Boslough discovers Taurid stream threat in late June -- 40 years after Clube and Napier
Oh, lordy, bring me my salts. I do feel the vapours coming on. You could have knocked the Tusk over with a feather at the Apple Store yesterday when my phone linked to the The Bos in the Washington Post, presenting at 2018 AGU, and pimping to the world: The Taurids are a threat![..
Long ago the Tusk noted a fascinating 2010 missive from The Bos concerning the virtue of everyone (else) remaining intellectually flexible. Or, as he put it, having a willingness to “change your mind.” Here is the link and I have copied the text at the bottom. The Bos’ statement has not aged well. I attended[..

It is safe to say The Bos is becoming obsessed. Someone please count and let me know, but I believe he has four publications this year seeking to undermine the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Over time he has published more than a dozen. Today he is back in PNAS — alone — and in the face[..
  The Bos is Back! Bos Mum on Mars Update: Coma Just Dust… Elenin: Sliding Spring backing off a bit….. Elenin: Probability of Mars Impact 1-120 or so  These media scientists are just too much. Below is bad astronomer Phil Plait validating the Napier Astronomical Model for the Younger Dryas Impact(s) and refuting The[..
Tusk takes Mark Boslough up on Younger Dryas crater probability challenge
Who knew? The Bos is a betting man. The recently retired federal scientist, global warming enthusiast, and unsuccessful Republican candidate for the New Mexico State Senate, tweeted his interest in a wager this week concerning the likelihood that the Hiawatha impact in Greenland would have occurred recently enough to cause the Younger Dryas climate[..
  As a rule, the Tusk is scrupulously clean of politics. There is a reference in my own blog bio to being a former conservative policy staffer in the US Senate, but that is background and not polemics. I am old fashioned and believe politics is generally if not inherently destructive of sound inquiry. The more[..

But why not France, Bos!? The news release   Independent investigators have failed to confirm the reports of enhanced concentrations of spherules and platinum-group elements in YD boundary sediments. Boslough, Surovell et al., January 30, 2013, Arguments and Evidence Against a Younger Dryas Impact Event      Interhemispheric evidence of a cosmic impact 12.9[..

The banner image above is Comet 73/P Schwassman-Wachmann fragmenting in orbit  ABSTRACT Intersection with the debris of a large (50-100 km) short-period comet during the Upper Palaeolithic provides a satisfactory explanation for the catastrophe of celestial origin which has been postulated to have occurred around 12900 BP, and which pre-saged a return to ice[..

   [See comments: Boslough responds!] Boslough et al’s recent paper gives no less than nine separate citations to Todd Surovell’s 2009 publication: An independent evaluation of the Younger Dryas extra-terrestrial hypothesis. The multiple references are not surprising given that the Surovell paper has become a totem of Boslough and other’s crusade to end research into the Younger Dryas[..
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[..
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[..
Dr. Bill Napier fingers fragmented comet in Younger Dryas and Bronze Age impacts
Folks, I am sorry to have been so scarce in recent months. Among other excuses for the inexcusable, the auto-mailer for subscribers to the site went down, and I felt I needed to repair it before posting. Fixing it turned into a mess which led to my continued procrastination. Much has happened in recent[..
