Whither Hiawatha?

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 crater […]

Jumping through Hoopes

University of Kansas professor claims bias in The Bib

You would think the Tusk and Marc Young’s effort to develop an easily accessible, comprehensive bibliography of all peer-reviewed literature concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis would prove a pretty uncontroversial matter. Indeed the effort might be appreciated by anyone interested in the subject, regardless of their support for the published evidence of global cataclysm […]

Twitter Tusk

Black mat becoming a thang

Well, maybe it’s not really a “thang,” yet. But the Tusk is having some popular fun on Twitter tweeting photographs of the iconic, but relatively unknown, Younger Dryas Black Mat. I think many people interested in our subject have some sense that a clearly visible, multi-continent-wide, destruction layer exists, but many others certainly do not […]

Peer review working?

YDIH dominates science community readership stats

The science publishing and peer-review process gets a lot of grief, often for good reason. Many fruitful areas of paradigm changing research languish outside the major journals and never pass from the gatekeepers to the printing press. But thankfully the YDIH, despite the controversy and “robust” debate, appears regularly in the world’s top earth science […]

New kid

Stefan Milo sits on fence

It is fun to see curious and smart people across the planet learn of our theory, and add content to the internet that allows rational consideration of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. In a well produced effort, this cat provides some informed science communication. Despite disagreeing with the Tusk on a point or two, it […]

Praetorious investigating "mysterious" Younger Dryas materials

Reaches out on Twitter to help ID odd discovery in marine core

I can’t quite recall where I first heard of Summer Praetorious, but she is a respected professional in our area of inquiry. So I was intrigued today to see Summer post a pic of a collection of rather odd materials from a Younger Dryas marine core sample. Mighty cool. Cheers to Summer for sharing the […]

2019 AGU abstract supports Younger Dryas "exacerbated" by cosmic impact

But cosmic impact follows volcano?

Sharma, 2013 This week is “abstract reveal” week for the enormous annual conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) held each December (See Tusk at 2009 AGU). So each year around this time I search the AGU website for any coming presentations concerning the Younger Dryas and cosmic impact. Fall Meeting 2019 San Fran turned […]

Updated Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis Bibliography and Paper Archive

Now with READ IT function!

Tireless Aussie Marc Young has done it again. During his summer holiday Marc has managed to link every YDIH peer-reviewed journal article directly from the bibliography spreadsheet. My idea to have a slick “accordion file” of all the papers at the bottom of the page was simply ahead of its time, and this is a […]

Tusk on Tape

George Howard interview links

The Cosmic Tusk has had the good fortune to join several podcasts in the last couple of years to discuss the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. I am a HUGE podcast fan, and unlike TV, narrow subject fiends like myself stand a chance to get on the air. The experience of speaking on our subject, instead […]

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 idea […]

Randall on Halloween

Randall Carlson does a great job here explaining a really creepy but profound aspect of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. Halloween, like death festivals worldwide in late October\early November, reflects the trauma inflicted by the Taurid Meteor stream on the ancients during recurring bombardments. As Bill Napier described it once to me, Earth’s intersection with […]
