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.
