A new day at the Cosmic Tusk

Papers #1 and #2 and Supplementary Materials Quick take at skeptic site NeuroLogica Tallboy – Widespread Panic (1997) The Tusk inaugurates our new look here by posting the most important paper in the peer-reviewed canon of the Comet Research Group since the original PNAS publication in 2007. It is truly a new day at the […]

Nice Dice?: The Bos disputes Harvard

It is safe to say The Bos is becoming obsessed. Someone please count and let me know, but I believe he has four publications this year seeking to undermine the Younger Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. Over time he has published more than a dozen. Today he is back in PNAS — alone — and in the face of Harvard […]

Two Ivies in two months confirm YD impact: Pinter of Southern Illinois - Carbondale to NBC: "Fringe science," questions integrity of National Academy of Sciences

A meteor or comet impact near Quebec heaved a rain of hot melted rock along North America’s Atlantic Coast about 12,900 years ago, a new study claims. Scientists have traced the geochemical signature of the BB-sized spherules that rained down back to their source, the 1.5-billion-year-old Quebecia terrane in northeastern Canada near the Gulf of […]

Melott 2013

We find that the increases in 14C and 10 Be at the time of the Younger Dryas are consistent with the airburst of a long-period comet of the suggested mass, making this a plausible scenario. Melott 2013 Cosmogenic nuclide enhancement via deposition from long-period comets as a test of the Younger… by George Howard

Mahaney 2013

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, although […]

Scammed!: Harvard publishes salted samples [Sarcasm]

Large Pt anomaly in the Greenland ice core points to a cataclysm at the onset of Younger Dryas by George Howard   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 […]

Earth to The Bos and Phil: The true cross-sectional area of the potentially dangerous material is greater than that of the original comet itself

  The Bos is Back! Bos Mum on Mars Update: Coma Just Dust… Elenin: Sliding Spring backing off a bit….. Elenin: Probability of Mars Impact 1-120 or so  These media scientists are just too much. Below is bad astronomer Phil Plait validating the Napier Astronomical Model for the Younger Dryas Impact(s) and refuting The Bos’ […]
