Some wag tweeted this funny cartoon today depicting the current state of affairs in Younger Dryas Boundary Research. The storyboard calls out The Bos and Vance Holliday for their willful ignorance with regard to the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The clever and extraordinarily well informed cartoonist points out the awkward position The Bos has created for […]
Science has named nine scientific advances as runners-up for the 2018 Breakthrough of the Year.
Seriously, it is really cool to see Science Magazine name Hiawatha Crater as 2018 breakthrough story runner up — and with due reference to the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The crater will be an intellectual gift that keeps on giving, and its better days are ahead. So I will go ahead and nominate the article […]
This paper from five years ago seems consistent with the Hiawatha Impact Crater. Some 13,000 years ago, as the last Ice Age seemed to lose its cold grip on the Earth, the temperature suddenly plunged again. Up to now, scientists believed that the Younger Dryas cold reversal was caused by great amounts of Canadian meltwater […]
Central Europeans confirm Laacher See volcanic eruption preceded cosmic impact at Younger Dryas start
See another blockbuster confirmation of the Younger Dryas cosmic impact below. I keep a pretty close eye on our subject but had no idea such intricate, original and thorough work was underway in the Czech Republic. Gunther Kleteschka has appeared on several YDB papers, but has clearly been busy in his own laboratory collecting entirely […]

The authors find a unique spike in fire at Akgol, Turkey ~13,000 years ago which they attribute to a horrendous inferno in a marsh, of all places. They cite Firestone […]
