The Hiawatha Crater and Global Warming politics

Science communicators give tongue to cats

In addition to the recent history of the earth, its animals, and mankind, the Hiawatha Crater discovery may have something else to teach us.

Dendrochronologist Mike Baillie on impacts more recent than Younger Dryas
