Morrison of NASA disputes Younger Dryas Impact Team — touts Tusk despite obscurity

Unfortunately, the overcrowded session ran late, and there was no time for discussion or questions. Even when their conclusions were challenged, most of the scientists in the audience chose not to respond. The result was a lost opportunity for real debate.
