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

Tusk TV

With Graham Hancock and Randall Carlson in Sedona, Arizona
The Tusk is back from a 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 bless…
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…
Deep insights from YouTube
As the Taurid meteor season wanes on the approach of Thanksgiving, I thought it was relevant (and economical) to share a couple of recent videos which present the Taurid phenomena from different, but mutually informative contexts. The first is a ‘live shot,’ and the second is a ‘retrospective,’ if you will….
The Tusk has characteristically hit a summer communication drought. But that doesn’t mean we can’t toss up a YouTube here and there from the coast. It’s welcome to see college courses fully integrating the Younger Dryas Impact into their thinking about the Younger Dryas and climate change. Here’s a great effort from Middlebury College….
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……
Wonderful 2009 show available again -- but watch quickly!
It seems like a lazy cheat to post YouTube videos two weeks in a row, instead of writing in-depth subject articles on the Tusk. But who has the time for that? And anyway the video below is a particularly special communication. It is special because WGBH\PBS no longer stream this 2009 episode on their…
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…
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…
Edinburgh professor nearing end of monumental YDIH review
What would the planet do without the tireless? I love how our subject draws in gifted obsessives from around the world. One example is Marc Young in Australia who compiled The Bib last year. Soon after The Bib was released, Dr. Martin Sweatman University of Edinburgh picked up and leveraged the easily available information. …
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,…
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…
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…
YouTuber explains worldwide religion in context of the Younger Dryas impact
Tusk video from Tall el-Hammam Ben at UnchartedX continues to produce excellent videos concerning the Younger Dryas Cataclysm and related subjects. Just recently he posted this superbly produced review of religious and mythical information and how it perfectly matches the hard science of impacts. Warning: This stuff is heavy, and as Ben points out,…
