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

Deadly Voyager: The Ancient Comet Strike that Changed Earth and Human History

James Lawrence Powell's new book on the #YDI

Deadly Voyager website

I was excited today to order a newly published book concerned 100% with the Younger Dryas Impact Event. The author is long-tenured and highly respected geologist, college president, museum director and writer, Dr. James Lawrence Powell. The book can be purchased from Amazon here.

I will devour the book and return with a review.

If the hypothesis of the impact is correct (and I am very impressed with the data) it is perhaps the most important hypothesis in the Earth Sciences, with ramifications in other fields, since plate tectonics. This is particularly so for its consequences on the history of peoples over the last 12,800 years.

  1. Wonderful news! I think I have told you earlier, George, I am getting close to trying to get my manuscript completed, mostly, but not entirely about the Younger Dryas. I will keep you informed on my progress in the coming weeks. But Yes, Congratulations to Dr. Powell on his book, too. Thank-you, Rod Chilton

  2. Hi Rod – good to hear from you, and I am looking forward to your new book.

    There is a paper of Native American memories of these over at academia

    “Man and Impact in the Americas” is sold out, and is now becoming a collectable book. I myself am switching to low gear, and intend to collect all of my writings to one internet site. My Etruscan Dictionary is doing well, and my recent note on two middle bronze age impacts is also getting noticed.

    See Garver on Obama’s planetary defense program:

    it would have been nice to have been there for that, but my stroke intervened.

    good luck,
