Pro Younger Dryas Impact Papers

Younger Dryas Impact cataclysm evidence exceeds that of UFO's
It has been proposed that the Younger Dryas period/GS-1 was initiated by a cosmic impact, for which there is indirect and debated evidence in a large number of sites in the NH surrounding the North Atlantic region (Kennett et al., 2015). A very significant Platinum (Pt) spike has been identified in the GISP2 ice[..
Authoritative and readable overview of the Younger Dryas Impact debate published in Earth Science Reviews
Indefatigable genius and digital friend of the Tusk, Dr. Martin Sweatman, authored a surprise blockbuster this week. Below is a peer-reviewed and fully accepted pre-online synthesis overview of the Younger Dryas Impact controversy since the very first paper in 2007. ‘The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis: review of the impact evidence’ concludes…[..
Tusk racks up two co-author citations PER WEEK in 2020
If you can’t toot your own horn on New Years, when can you? As a citizen scientist the Tusk is darn proud — and thankful to the credentialed lead authors — to close 2020 with exactly 100 co-author citations. More interesting than my navel, perhaps, is the trend in citations concerning the Younger Dryas[..
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[..
Pro-science skeptic Dr. Marc Defant now supporting #YDIH based on Powell book
Dr. Marc Defant did a great thing this morning by announcing on Twitter and his blog that he had come around to support the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. As I told Marc, my respect for his intellectual integrity soared when I saw his tweet.[..
Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis validated by very mainstream science publications
In the midst of current events and my decades old fascination with disease from space, I failed to notify Tusk readers that the long journey to legitimacy seems done for the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. Last week a relatively obscure publication — but a critical gatekeeper to acceptable science — did a great job[..
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,[..
Younger Dryas expert James T. Teller joins supportive YDIH publication
James T. Teller The Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis achieved its first publishing “Three-Peet” of supportive papers this month. It started with the Thackeray paper the first week, then came the Moore paper in week two, and now at the end of October comes Teller to make it three blockbusters in a single month. The[..
Fox jumps on story, draws more than 2000 comments
Asteroid impact 13K years ago wiped out woolly mammoths, sabre-tooth cats in mini ice age: study Giant asteroid strike 13K years ago had ‘global consequences,’ shocking study says Watch the latest video at foxnews.com[..
Christopher Moore of USC nails Platinum Layer at ~12,800 before present in White Pond, South Carolina
  New evidence that an extraterrestrial collision 12,800 years ago triggered an abrupt climate change for Earth The muck that’s been accumulating at the bottom of this lake for 20,000 years is like a climate time capsule. Christopher R. Moore, University of South Carolina What kicked off the Earth’s rapid cooling 12,800 years ago?[..
Martin Sweatman goes deep into Younger Dryas bibliography 2007 - 2009
Martin Sweatman, when not writing a profound book, is building quite a nice catalog of videos concerning the YDIH and related subjects. This one is particularly welcome and represents the best walk-though of the debate, paper by paper, twist by turn, since Hancock’s careful narration here. This is invaluable science communication and should be[..
Younger Dryas Impact Platinum peaks found again in Southern Hemisphere
NY Post Gizmodo Quartz Francis Thackeray   This confirmation of a South African platinum layer from the Younger Dryas Impact was particularly welcome for several reasons.  First, it is another confirmation of evidence for  the impact in the Southern Hemisphere, following the Pilauco paper from Chile in March of this year. Second, the lead[..
Dr. Bill Napier fingers fragmented comet in Younger Dryas and Bronze Age impacts
Folks, I am sorry to have been so scarce in recent months. Among other excuses for the inexcusable, the auto-mailer for subscribers to the site went down, and I felt I needed to repair it before posting. Fixing it turned into a mess which led to my continued procrastination. Much has happened in recent[..
Younger Dryas Boundary team publishes evidence from Chile in Nature for global climate cataclysm
The main objective of this study was to test the YDB impact hypothesis by analyzing a wide range of data from the Pilauco site in southern Chile. The following conclusions show that our data and interpretations are consistent with the YDB impact hypothesis and we found no evidence that refutes the hypothesis. (1) At[..
Sweatman and Coombs lay odds on Gobekli Tepe and the Younger Dryas comet
Martin Sweatman, like The Bos, is a betting man. But in this instance I want his side of the wager. Today Sweatman published a masterpiece of original, rational statical analysis reporting a series of planetary catastrophes as recorded by our elders in ancient symbols in cave art and carved rock. The historic rejection of ancient[..
