This post is for total nerds. So stop here if you have a social life.
Below I’ve excerpted a lengthy debate in the comment section of the Tusk concerning the timing and cause of global shocks since the Younger Dryas, in particular the eventful downturns of the last 2022 years.
Tusk buddy Jonny McAneny kicked it off in the comment section by calling into question support for a cosmic event at 1014 AD, the subject of my recent re-post concerning a possible Atlantic cosmic tsunami at that time. I welcomed Jonny’s informed skepticism.
But then, out of nowhere, an equally informed reader Stuart Hamish jumps in and goes toe-to-toe with Jonny on the matter, and broadens the subject to include the horrible period of the 530s AD. The exchange is chockablock full of all sorts of obscure citations and ancient references. Some of you will enjoy it I think.
But, like I say, the debate is not for the data hesitant…
