To a great degree the Tusk itself was a response to my frustration with Todd Surovell and Vance Holliday’s botched 2009 PNAS journal article, “An independent evaluation of the Younger Dryas extraterrestrial impact hypothesis,“ published three months before this blog began. Despite my early understanding of the sloppy work of the authors, however, I…
Today’s press release from the University of Oregon complimenting yesterday’s from the University of South Carolina. Surovell, et. al 2009 has another serious challenge here.   Challengers to Clovis-age impact theory missed key protocols, new study finds EUGENE, Ore. — (Sept. 18, 2012) — An interdisciplinary team of scientists from seven U.S. institutions says a disregard…
Excellent content piling up on the Younger Dryas Impact Event
The Tusk recalls keeping the YDIE a secret in 2006 and 2007, so as not to threaten the publication of what became the seminal paper in 2007. Today the secret is most assuredly OUT. Hundreds of hours of podcasts, videos, and plain old lectures are spilling forth from people all over the globe who are…

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…

Magnificent article from Tusk favorite Marie-Agnes Courty, and distinguished newcomer to catastrophist publications, Eric Coqueugniot. I heard Courty hurl questions at San Francisco AGU in 2010 and only realized later who the thickly accented inquisitor was. Courty is French, very French. While I admire her style with translation and find it interesting, it can…

   [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…
