Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes pinned on fragmenting Taurid comet
Bill Napier's work to warn of increased risk described by Evan Gough of Universe Today

In a nutshell, Napier’s study shows how comets are likely to fragment and lose considerable mass during encounters with the inner Solar System. The debris trail can expand to a cross section larger than Earth, increasing the odds of impacts with Earth. Also, the debris has considerable impact energy. But over time, that energy weakens, and the debris trail contracts again.

Just a quick post of a great article from last year. Evan Gough does a fantastic job describing a series of events that are just now entering the public imagination.

  1. I don’t believe so, Martin. Boslough acknowledges the Taurid meteor stream as a threat, so that requires him to believe comets make debris streams. The guy may be afraid to blaspheme against the prevailing paradigm, but there is no need to strawman his arguments, they are weak enough on their own.
