Sciency journalist misreports climate giant Wallace Broecker on Younger Dryas
The failure to properly report evidence for the Younger Dryas Impact will one day be understood as the worst intellectual crime in the history of science journalism. I recently came across an illustrative example in the work of Alexandra Witze. In March Alex published a hagiography of Wally Broecker and his lifetime of work…
With Graham Hancock and Randall Carlson in Sedona, Arizona
The Tusk is back from a simply wonderful four-night stay in Sedona, Arizona, where I gave  a presentation on the Younger Dryas Impact. Wordviewz Media and HowTube’s conference was another milestone on my own journey from hard-headed, meat eating, materialist; to hard-headed, meat eating, materialist…who loves hanging out with the Arizona “crystal crowd.” God…
James Lawrence Powell again defends the integrity of science
The Bunch et al. paper concerning the biblical city of Tall el-Hammam and co-authored by the Tusk has proven a dramatic publication. Arguably the most popular scientific journal article on earth, the paper has by turns been reported to millions; smeared by anti-Christian bigots; spared by a secular publisher; and most recently employed by…
Broecker, Shermer and Defant reverse opposition to Younger Dryas Impact
A little blue bird tweeted this weekend that the Younger Dryas Impact was off her radar since she was “not aware of widespread community acceptance of the proposal.” I’m not aware of any books on that topic – I believe most of the discussion has been in journal articles. I’m also not aware of…
Tusk TV begins oral history interviews with newly minted Member of the British Empire
Not long ago before the holiday I asked my friend Chandra Wickramasinghe to take a stab at the first video discussion on the Tusk. We were patient with each other, and each requested a delay before we chatted. But it turned out wonderfully, in my humble opinion, and even included a “synchronistic” aspect. The…
Jimmy on Rogan; YDI centerpiece of new novel
Tusk travel buddy from the Egypt 2020 Expedition, Jimmy Corsetti of Bright Insight, appeared last week on The Joe Rogan Experience, the most popular conversation on planet earth. The Younger Dryas Impact was a frequent subject. This single clip was viewed by over 3 million people. Not to be outdone, Comet Research Group resident…
NetFlix comet blockbuster most expensive production ever for studio
The cruel irony of this welcome movie should be apparent to Tusk regulars. A satirical blockbuster uses an impending comet impact as a plot device to communicate a deeper message to the planet that no one listens to scientists who….warn us of climate change. The director reveals his subtext in many interviews, and calls…
Taurid Meteor Stream pummels planet throughout human history, remains menace; Nobel Prize for UK Neo-Catastrophists?
A comprehensive study of the Taurid meteor stream released last week confirms a central understanding of astronomer Dr. Bill Napier and the Comet Research Group, one which was incorporated into the YDI hypothesis from the start. From Discover Magazine: The longest-studied comets in our solar system have inspired ancient myths, religious fervor and modern scientific…
Tusk leaves keyboard for unparalleled excavation in Hashemite Kingdom
This is an easy Monday post. The Tusk was a minor co-author of a paper with extraordinary implications to science and faith published today in Nature’s Scientific Reports. The lengthy journal article has been under development since 2014 when I first traveled to Jordan to join the wonderful Trinity Southwest University at Tall el-Hammam….
Crater man Christian Koeberl denies impact crater
To gauge the depth of the anti-science pathology surrounding the Younger Dryas Impact, it is instructive to review a single quote from an oft-quoted ‘expert’ in cosmic impact craters, Dr. Christian Koeberl. In 2018, shortly after NASA announced in Science the discovery of the Hiawatha Crater in NW Greenland, Koeberl provided his opinion, which…
Hmmm...
Avi Loeb is no household name, but he wants to be. The chairman of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard has appeared on more than 50 podcasts since the start of the year. Given a minimum of one hour per podcast, I’d ask for a week’s pay back if I were Harvard. The guy…
Internet wag zeros in on real science
This is a priceless video spoof concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. And surprisingly, it is directed at the most timely part of the actual debate — the most recent attack on the hypothesis from Sun et al. — which it manages to DESTROY. https://t.co/WQtQFoDsRk — George Howard (@CosmicTusk) February 6, 2021…
Bill Napier's work to warn of increased risk described by Evan Gough of Universe Today
In a nutshell, Napier’s study shows how comets are likely to fragment and lose considerable mass during encounters with the inner Solar System. The debris trail can expand to a cross section larger than Earth, increasing the odds of impacts with Earth. Also, the debris has considerable impact energy. But over time, that energy…
New media creatives share the adventure
The only thing more fun than touring Egypt top to bottom is making the trip with creative people that record the adventure and share it with the world. The Tusk is thrilled to have the memories and interpretations of our wonderful expedition out there to enjoy for years to come. Lemme know if I’ve…
PBS includes the cosmic cataclysm, and Jim Kennett explains it
Between Egypt and the ‘Ro I have neglected to post a lot in the last few months. I’ll be trying to rectify that this year, in part by doing shorter posts with more 3rd party media concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Catastrophe. There have also been a couple of new papers I’ve not posted…
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…
Tusk sends letter of protest to editor, hopes to avoid litigation
To the Editor of Space.com: I am writing to protest misinformation in your article, “No, the coronavirus didn’t come from outer space. We promise” [March 16, 2020, Space.com], and demand an immediate published retraction and apology to the subject of your article, Dr. Wickramasinghe….
