The Tusk recommends the blog Crater Hunter: A Catastrophe of Comets as another stop to study strange claims and the science that supports them.  I think it is authored by Dennis Cox(?), but regardless, the author is clearly a brave and dedicated soul — and the writing ain’t half bad. The more I learn about…
[Whipple Obit] In an independent defense of  David Morrison’s ham-handed screed in the (giggle) Skeptical Inquirer challenging the science of the YDB event, respected British astronomer Bill Napier invokes some greats of the past — in particular, Fred Whipple of Harvard, the grandfather of American comet science — in support of his central claim…
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. Perhaps not surprisingly, the AGU session received very little press attention. Indeed, following the AGU and GSA meetings, the YD impact hypothesis seems…
Napier paper: Palaeolithic extinctions and the Taurid Complex When the story books are re-written, the increasing — but uncoordinated — coherence between the Brit Neo-Catastrophists and the American YDB team will make interesting study for students of science history.   These two groups have no overlap but the facts are leading them to the…
