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 enigmatic “Carolina Bays,” and their possible relationship to a catastrophe 12,800 years ago. The introduction ultimately resulted in a groundbreaking impact publication he co-authored in 2007 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, and several major papers since. George has accumulated nearly 1000 academic citations.
Frustrated by the denial of the data in some quarters, in 2010 George began the Cosmic Tusk blog to respond to the critics. The Cosmic Tusk chronicles the back-and-forth process of acceptance of the proposed impact, along with other suspected impacts in human times. In 2015 he co-founded the Comet Research Group, where he is a Director with Dr. Ted Bunch and Allen West.
In addition to collaborating with dozens of credentialed scientists from around the world, George works closely with Graham Hancock, Randall Carlson, and many other alternative history science communicators concerning the Younger Dryas Impact. George is uncertain about “pre-cursor” civilizations, but open minded, and convinced our modern world is nonetheless borne of global catastrophe.
George worked on Capitol Hill in the United States Senate for six years before founding Restoration Systems in 1998 in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is CEO of the company which is a national leader in compensatory environmental mitigation. He is an enthusiastic, opinionated, regular guy, and a guest on many podcasts concerning his obscure interests.
