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

PBS NOVA on the Younger Dryas Impact

Wonderful 2009 show available again -- but watch quickly!

It seems like a lazy cheat to post YouTube videos two weeks in a row, instead of writing in-depth subject articles on the Tusk. But who has the time for that? And anyway the video below is a particularly special communication. It is special because WGBH\PBS no longer stream this 2009 episode on their services — nor have they since 2011 — reportedly at the behest of Younger Dryas Impact critics.  Meanwhile, in more recent times, this PBS science dude gives us our due. Go figure.

In any case, it is a beautiful program that deserves to be seen. Anyone with the slightest interest in our subject would enjoy it immensely. Keep in mind its availability has been of an “ephemeral” nature given certain vagaries surrounding “copyright,” and silly notions like that.

Bonus video: Great show and kind words for the Tusk from Randall Carlson and Ben at UnchartedX.
