Vance Holliday disguises rant as lecture
The bibliography of the subject alone refutes Vance Holliday’s absolute and categorical rejection of all evidence for the YDIH in a recent lecture. There are simply too many groups publishing too many papers for all of the evidence to be entirely rejected by anyone, even a persistent critic like Holliday. For gosh sake, the…
Science has named nine scientific advances as runners-up for the 2018 Breakthrough of the Year.
Seriously, it is really cool to see Science Magazine name Hiawatha Crater as 2018 breakthrough story runner up — and with due reference to the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis. The crater will be an intellectual gift that keeps on giving, and its better days are ahead. So I will go ahead and nominate the…

Bos Bet… Voosen article in Science Magazine Seven Ages Daily Mail National Geographic BBC NYT MSN Oh, happy day! The Tusk heard about this discovery confidentially in March but the following nine months were characterized by an uncertain confidence this day would truly come. We had published evidence for a decade, and knew a…
I was about ten when my mom bought a Science News subscription for the Tusk. Week after week the thin, frequent, small format publication filled my desk, and ultimately the floor of my room. The rush of science coverage came so quickly I sometimes felt guilty as a little guy for not reading every…
Paleolithic Extinctions and the Taurid Complex (2010) Centaurs as a Hazard to Civilization (2015) Excerpted from Wolbach et. al (2018) Astronomical Hypothesis for the YDB Impact Event Regarding the probability of a swarm of cometary fragments hitting the Earth, Boslough et al. (2013) claimed that the YDB event is “statistically and physically impossible,” whereas Napier…
Bill Napier sent the Tusk a note regarding Joe Rogan’s unforgettable debate-style podcast on the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Bill’s message is posted below my rant here. His informed correction of Marc Defant’s self-styled skeptical authority on comets is priceless and instructive. A cultural genre of all-purpose professional “skeptics,” like Defant and Shermer, have emerged…
According to Hancock
I recently discovered an essay from Graham Hancock that manages to convey both the profound intellectual significance — and petty scholastic drama — of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis since 2007. Hancock doesn’t note his good timing, but as he writes in 2017 it is the 10th anniversary of the Comet Research Group’s Acapulco AGU presentations…

Joe Rogan hosts epic 3.5 hour podcast debating the Younger Dryas impact
Almost 24 hours later and I am still catching my breath. Last night’s Joe Rogan Experience podcast was pure heaven for the Tusk. As folks might have noted, the world’s most popular interview podcast has taken a long-standing interest in our subject. Graham Hancock has appeared on Rogan six times in recent years, I…
Robert Schoch Dr. Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., of Boston University, is a thought provoking scientist with an open-minded approach to new ideas. Unfortunately his interest in disruptive theories has never extended itself to the Younger Dryas Boundary hypothesis, as he details on his webpage in a critique titled “Controversies Concerning the End ofthe Last Ice Age.”…
The Paper The Tusk has been interested for some time in conducting an occasional interview with players in fields related to cosmic catastrophes in human times. So much of the coverage of our subject is “drive-by” journalism, with uninformed reporters on deadline asking shallow, often misinformed, questions of key scientists and then writing a…
Source: JOURNAL OF GEOLOGY Volume: 121 Issue: 4 Pages: 309-325 DOI: 10.1086/670652 Published: JUL 2013 Abstract: Previous work has ascribed a cosmic impact origin to black, high-temperature, carbon-encrusted beds (2–3 cm thick), associated with the Younger Dryas readvance of ice at 12.8 ka during the Late Glacial in the northern Andes of Venezuela. The…
The accuracy of information concerning the YDB event on the Wikipedia has always suffered from the dominance of a moderator describing himself as “Skeptical Raptor.” Watching the Raptor do his wiki-work has taught the Tusk that cynicism has few bounds — and the truth has few friends (that stay up that late at night). The…

The breakup in space of a comet or asteroid prior to impact could produce a surface or oceanic impact by the largest object, and hundreds of smaller fragments could create air-bursts affecting an entire hemisphere (Bunch et al. 2012). Approximately 90% of all ejecta from the main impact would fall within five crater radii,…

Large Pt anomaly in the Greenland ice core points to a cataclysm at the onset of Younger Dryas    In yet another scurrilous feat of science sample salting, Dr. Allen West and his so-called “Younger Dryas Boundary Team” have now managed to clandestinely contaminate ice core samples from the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2…
