Younger Dryas Impact Evidence

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?…
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…
Arabia Bay sediments to be tested by Georgia High School
Want to know a sure-fire formula to get long time internet friends together in person — and even outdoors on a blazing August day? Dig up a perfectly featured Carolina Bay. Long time Carolina bay enthusiasts, digital buddies of the Tusk, and curious citizens, Chris Cotrell, Antonio Zamora, Michael Davias, Micah Hanks and Jason…

Any follower of Catastrophism the last few years has seen extraordinary confirmations of ancient cataclysm and novel contributions to our way of thinking. To the Tusk, three revelations have characterized the period: The discovery of an extraordinarily youthful late Pleistocene crater in Greenland; a series of popular, comprehensive and unrefuted major journal articles with…
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…
The Bos and Vance Holliday in the funny papers
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…
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…
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…

This week Rick Firestone shared a little known 2009 paper with the Tusk and some others. I was unaware of it and enjoyed reading it. 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…
