Exploring abrupt climate change induced by comets and asteroids during human history

A friend sent me this paper from Dr. Martin Sweatman who gained international notoriety last year with a previous journal article linking the world’s most ancient temple, Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, with the Younger Dryas Impact.

The Tusk enjoyed that paper and was pleased to see Sweatman make a second contribution to our field; this time an informative overview of Catastrophism in general. We need more generalist overviews. The critics who sneer at the evidence and speculation concerning cosmic catastrophes in the human past have little perspective on the long and distinguished history of our natural philosophy.
