The Cosmic Tusk: Open Letter: Napier on Defant and the Joe Rogan podcast

Bill Napier sent the Tusk a note regarding Joe Rogan’s unforgettable debate-style podcast on the Young Dryas Boundary Hypothesis. His detailed and informed correction of Marc Defant’s self-styled skeptical authority on comets is priceless and instructive

A cultural genre of professional all-purpose “skeptics,” like Defant and Shermer, have emerged since the James Randi kicked off

The Cosmic Tusk: Hancock on the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis since 2007

Entire essay on grahamhancock.com

I just discovered a very welcome recent essay from Graham Hancock summing up the drama and siginificance of the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis since 2007. Hancock doesn’t note his good timing, but 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the Comet Research Group’s Acapulco AGU presentations introducing the YDIH, and this type

Daily Mail on the Younger Dryas Impact

That wouldn’t be half as extraordinary as the announcement in

The Cosmic Tusk: Comet Research Group responds to Robert Schoch

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

The Comet Research Group crowdfunding effort announced on the Tusk last month, and originally scheduled for November 1st, was pushed back in the interest of avoiding the pending election hysteria. The new date of Monday, November 14th also helps place the launch at a more promising time, a day before a key appearance of

The Cosmic Tusk: Awkward but promising: Compromise paper from Andronikov & Van Hoesel

The presence of a possible meteoritic component in the same sediments suggests that an ET event occurred at approximately the same time. However, whether the presence of the meteoritic component is due to a local meteorite impact/airburst or to a much stronger event remains unclear. Anyway, it is quite possible that some short and dramatic
